MIT demonstrates new form of magnetic behavior

12/23/2012 |

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have demonstrated quantum spin liquid magnetism, a state that was previously theorized, using a solid crystal. "There is no static order to the magnetic orientations, known as magnetic moments, within the material. But there is a strong interaction between them, and due to quantum effects, they don't lock in place," MIT physics professor Young Lee said.
