Supercomputing, experiment combine for first look at magnetism of real nanoparticle



Oak Ridge TN (SPX) Feb 07, 2017
Barely wider than a strand of human DNA, magnetic nanoparticles - such as those made from iron and platinum atoms - are promising materials for next-generation recording and storage devices like hard drives. Building these devices from nanoparticles should increase storage capacity and density, but understanding how magnetism works at the level of individual atoms is critical to getting the best performance. However, magnetism at the atomic scale is extremely difficult to observe experimentally, e ... read more

A middleweight black hole is hiding at the center of a giant star cluster
All known black holes fall into two categories: small, stellar-mass black holes weighing a few Suns, and supermassive black holes weighing millions or billions of Suns. Astronomers expect that intermediate-mass black holes weighing 100 - 10,000 Suns also exist, but so far no conclusive proof of such middleweights has been found. Today, astronomers are announcing new evidence that an intermediate ... more
