Heat can manipulate nanoscale magnets



Phys.Org (June 8) -- MatSE researchers, led by David Cahill, have uncovered physical mechanisms allowing the manipulation of magnetic information with heat. These new phenomena rely on the transport of thermal energy, in contrast to the conventional application of magnetic fields, providing a new, and highly desirable way to manipulate magnetization at the nanoscale.
