Using an advanced technique, scientists discover that one of the most common substances in our everyday lives — glass — is more complex than we thought.
The DOE effort foresees a slew of health, environmental and safety applications.
Engineers to develop greener, cheaper technology
The work by Dagan et. al. explores the emergence and coexistence of superconductivity and magnetism at the interface between insulating, non-magnetic LaAlO3 and SrTiO3 nanowires at low temperatures. The effect of the antiparallel magnetic order on the resistance of the 50 nm wide patterned wires follows the form of giant magnetoresistance (GMR) at low applied magnetic fields.
A lot of great science happens at the National MagLab every year. Here’s a list of the best interdisciplinary research enabled by our world-record magnets in 2015.
Scientists explore using one magnet to disrupt the field of another.
New technique transforms common materials into powerful magnets.
Discovery of a new kind of electron spin superstructure in crystals opens the tantalizing prospect of finding other emergent exotic phases.
Scientists pioneer method that enables material to carry more electrical current without resistance at a higher temperature.
