Magnetic materials could help build future computers
London, Oct 15 (IANS) Magnetic materials form the basis of most hard disc drives as they are able to store data. Now, a team from the University of Sheffield has proposed that they could also be used to perform calculations and so take on the role of a computer's central processing unit (CPU).
New evidence for an exotic, predicted superconducting state
Superconductors and magnetic fields do not usually get along. But a research team led by a Brown University physicist has produced new evidence for an exotic superconducting state, first predicted a half-century ago, that can indeed arise when a superconductor is exposed to a strong magnetic field.
Reverse Engineering Materials For More Efficient Heating And Cooling
Provided by Catherine Meyers, American Institute of Physics A new way to calculate the electrical properties of individual components of composite materials could open a path toward more energy-efficient medical refrigerators, air-conditioned car seats and more If you’ve ever gone for a spin in a luxury car and felt your back being warmed or cooled by a seat-based climate control system, then ...
