Transforming medical diagnosis with new scanning technology
A new technology which dramatically improves the sensitivity of magnetic resonance techniques including those used in hospital scanners and chemistry laboratories has been developed by scientists at the University of York. Ultimately, the technique, based on manipulating parahydrogen, the fuel of the space shuttle, is expected to allow doctors to learn far more about a patient's condition from an MRI scan at lower cost while increasing the range of medical conditions that can be examined.

Eco-friendly method for the synthesis of iron oxide nanoparticles
Environmentally Friendly Way of Synthesizing Iron Oxide Nanoparticles Was Developed. UrFU scientists, together with their colleages (Bangladesh Engineering University), described a new method of obtaining magnetic nanoparticles. The substances contained in natural materials are unstable and enter into redox reactions with environmental components, which leads to the need to look for suitable stabilizers that are essential substances for newly synthesized nanoparticles. It has become one of the goals of research conducted by Ural scientists. (2019-09-16)

Lithium found to be a superconductor
Theorists may have to go back to the blackboard to explain what happens to compressed lithium under high pressure and low temperature conditions. Experiments have now transformed this lightest metallic element into a superconductor under pressures consistent with theory, but with temperatures that are much lower than predicted. The results, reported in the October 17, Science, suggest that similar theories on superconductivity in solids should be reexamined. (2002-10-17)

What can a magnet tell you about rain patterns? More than you would guess
In the journal Nature Physics, UCLA's Ole Peters and J. David Neelin report that the onset of intense tropical rain and magnetism share the same underlying physics even though the atmosphere spans the globe, while a magnet fits easily in your hand. (2006-06-21)

Physicists studied the influence of magnetic field on thin film structures
A team of scientists from Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University together with their colleagues from Russia, Japan, and Australia studied the influence of inhomogeneity of magnetic field applied during the fabrication process of thin-film structures made from nickel-iron and iridium-manganese alloys, on their properties. These systems can be used in various types of magnetic field sensors. The article of the team was published in the Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials. (2018-12-17)

Rosetta teams up with New Horizons
ESA and NASA are mounting a joint campaign to observe Jupiter over the next few weeks with two different spacecraft. Rosetta will watch the big picture from its current position near Mars, whilst New Horizons will take close-up data as it speeds past the largest planet in our solar system on its journey to Pluto.

Electrons falling flat: Germanium falls into a 2D arrangement on zirconium diboride
Scientists have recently revealed, both theoretically and experimentally, that germanium atoms can arrange themselves into a 2D 'bitriangular' lattice on zirconium diboride thin films grown on germanium single crystals to form a 'flat band material' with an embedded 'kagome' lattice. The result provides experimental support to a theoretical prediction of flat bands emerging from trivial atomic geometry and indicates the possibility of their existence in many more materials.

ASRC professor leads study on reconfigurable magnetic nanopatterns
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.

Light swirls provide insights into the quantum world
A new method uses swirls of light to observe previously invisible quantum states of electrons. It was developed by physicists from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and an international team of researchers. It delivers new insights into electron motion, which is crucial for material properties such as electrical conductivity, magnetism and molecular structures. The free electron laser FERMI in Italy provided experimental proof and the results were published in the journal 'Nature Photonics'. (2020-08-10)

Scientists levitate heaviest elements with help from cold oxygen
Scientists at the University of Nottingham have successfully levitated diamond and some of the heaviest elements, including lead and platinum. Using liquid oxygen to increase the buoyancy created by a specially designed superconducting magnet, they could now levitate a hypothetical object with a density 15 times larger than that of the densest known material, osmium. This research is published today (11th May 2005) in the New Journal of Physics co-owned by the Institute of Physics and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (the German Physical Society).

Georgia Tech researchers get $5 million to smooth out kinks in electromagnetic propulsion
Georgia Tech and several partner institutions have received a $5 million, five-year grant to study the effects that very high electromagnetic stress can have on electromagnetic launchers. The research could help bring electromagnetic propulsion from research to practical use. (2004-07-22)

NIST scientists gain new 'core' understanding of nanoparticles
A NIST research team has uncovered a mystery in the magnetic response of iron-oxide nanoparticles, one that may be a key to controlling nanoparticle magnetism for future applications. (2010-05-27)

Acid raid, ozone depletion contributed to ancient extinction
Around 250 million years ago, at the end of the Permian period, there was a mass extinction so severe that it remains the most traumatic known species die-off in Earth's history. Some researchers have suggested that this extinction was triggered by contemporaneous volcanic eruptions in Siberia. New results show that the atmospheric effects of these eruptions could have been devastating. (2013-11-22)

National Science Board Honors Maxine Frank Singer With Vannevar Bush Award
The National Science Board (NSB) has named Maxine Frank Singer, Ph.D., president of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, D.C. to receive the 1999 Vannevar Bush Award for lifetime contributions to science and engineering. (1999-04-15)

Cluster hits the magnetic bull's-eye
ESA's spacecraft constellation Cluster has hit the magnetic bull's-eye. The four spacecraft surrounded a region within which the Earth's magnetic field was spontaneously reconfiguring itself. (2006-07-18)

The sun's magnetic field is about to flip
Something big is about to happen on the sun. According to measurements from NASA-supported observatories, the sun's vast magnetic field is about to flip. (2013-08-06)

Controlling the optical properties of solids with acoustic waves
Physicists from Switzerland, Germany, and France have found that large-amplitude acoustic waves, launched by ultrashort laser pulses, can dynamically manipulate the optical response of semiconductors. (2019-12-02)

Cornell researchers have become the first to control atomically thin magnets with an electric field, a breakthrough that provides a blueprint for producing exceptionally powerful and efficient data storage in computer chips, among other applications. (2018-04-04)

Mechanism of explosions and plasma jets associated with sunspot formation revealed
Researchers revealed the configurations of magnetic field lines in 'light bridges' on the Sun by combining observations by satellites and numerical simulation. Light bridges often appear in growing sunspots and show intense activities such as explosions and jets. This study reveals, for the first time, the intimate relationship between the magnetism hidden in the solar interior, sunspot formation at the surface, and the dynamism of the Sun's atmosphere.
