Researchers from IKBFU study properties of amorphous microwires

May 22, 2019

Glass coated amorphous microwires are the newest perspective magnetic composite alloys that can be used for the creation of modern high-speed mass storage devices with high recording density and logic elements. It is necessary to know specific physical properties in order to use these alloys in real manufacturing. For this reason, the researchers from the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University together with their colleagues from National University of Science and Technology MISIS have studied how the internal mechanical stresses influence magnetostrictive, magnetostatic and magnetodynamic properties of glass coated amorphous microwires.

The Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials has published two articles on the following topics: Effect of glass-removal on the magnetostriction and magnetic switching properties in amorphous FeSiB microwires and Control of magneto-static and -dynamic properties by stress tuning in Fe-Si-B amorphous microwires with fixed dimensions.

#535 Superior
Apologies for the delay getting this week's episode out! A technical glitch slowed us down, but all is once again well. This week, we look at the often troubling intertwining of science and race: its long history, its ability to persist even during periods of disrepute, and the current forms it takes as it resurfaces, leveraging the internet and nationalism to buoy itself. We speak with Angela Saini, independent journalist and author of the new book "Superior: The Return of Race Science", about where race science went and how it's coming back.
