Researchers from the University of Georgia are giving new meaning to the phrase “turning rust into gold”—and making the use of gold in research settings and industrial applications far more affordable.
An innovative method to apply the therapeutic effect of heating or cooling the tissues using the magnetocaloric effect (MCE) has been developed by a group of Russian physicists in collaboration with their Swiss colleagues.
Implanting magnetic memory chips on flexible plastic surfaces, while ensuring high performance, can now be done with a new method.
So-called "zero-point energy" is a term familiar to some cinema lovers or series fans; in the fictional world of animated films such as "The Incredibles" or the TV series "Stargate Atlantis", it denotes a powerful and virtually inexhaustible energy source.
Researchers of the Nanomagnetism Group and Electron Microscopy Group at CIC nanoGUNE devised and demonstrated a novel approach to nanoactuation that relies on magnetomechanics instead of the conventional electromechanics utilized in micro and nanoactuated mechanical systems. The work was reported in Small.
A new electron microscopy technique created by a group of researchers from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Uppsala University, Sweden, allows scientists to identify magnetism at the atomic level. The scientists came out with a different approach by using optical distortions that were usually eliminated.
The KiwiNet Emerging Innovator Fund has awarded $20,000 to Dr Jérôme Leveneur, a researcher in the Environment and Materials division of GNS Science¹s National Isotope Centre, to create an innovative nano-scale magnetic material. The magnetic material composed of nanostructures created by Dr Leveneur is 1000 times thinner that a human hair. The material’s improved properties over the traditional magnetic materials can be attributed to its small scale. This latest development could be exploited to enhance the energy efficiency of inductors and transformers.
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory and headed by Zhili Xiao, Northern Illinois University physicist and Argonne materials scientist, have developed a new type of material dubbed, 'rewritable magnetic charge ice'. This material allows an unexceptional level of control over local magnetic fields that could provide new opportunities towards next-generation computing technologies.
Two-dimensional images are shown for each eye with standard 3D displays, like glass-free autostereoscopic displays and stereo displays with glasses. These pseudo-3D images result in users experiencing incongruity and eyestrain.
A team of international scientists led by researchers of the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) and the Politecnico of Milan in Italy has demonstrated a novel approach for designing fully reconfigurable magnetic nanopatterns whose properties and functionality can be programmed and reprogrammed on-demand.
