In the Netherlands, researchers double down on new discoveries by boosting the power of high-field magnets with lasers.
Using intense pulsed magnetic fields and measurements at low temperatures, MagLab users have found evidence of a long-sought “spin liquid” in terbium indium oxide (TbInO3)
Study of helium atoms at low temperatures illuminate extreme quantum effects that were earlier predicted.
The findings contribute to scientists' understanding of magnetic materials that could point the way to future applications.
A material already known for its unique behavior is found to carry current in a way never before observed.
Scientists used high magnetic fields and low temperatures to study crystals of URu2–xFexSi2. Using these conditions, they explored an intriguing state of matter called the "hidden order phase" that exhibits emergent behavior. Emergent behavior occurs when the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, meaning the whole has exciting properties that its parts do not possess; it is an important concept in philosophy, the brain and theories of life. This data provide strict constraints on theories of emergent behavior.
Experiment shows that emergent quantum fluid behavior of helium-3 confined to one dimension is observable using special low-temperature NMR techniques.
This MagLab user talks about meeting Leonardo da Vinci, making magnetic soup and the freedom of being a scientist.
With just a drop of water, a cobalt-based material changes both color and magnetic properties.
This area of research could help scientists understand high-temperature superconductivity and other mysteries.
