Pushing the boundaries of magnet design

For physicists, loss of magnetisation in permanent magnets can be a real concern. In response, the Japanese company Sumitomo created the strongest available magnet — one offering ten times more magnetic energy than previous versions — in 1983. These magnets are a combination of materials including rare-earth metal and so-called transition metals, and are accordingly referred to as RE-TM-B magnets. A Russian team has now been pushing the boundaries of magnet design, as published in a recent study in EPJ Plus.

Electron beam microscope directly writes nanoscale features in liquid with metal ink

Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory are the first to harness a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) to directly write tiny patterns in metallic “ink,” forming features in liquid that are finer than half the width of a human hair.

Way found to make alane a better hydrogen fuel option for vehicles

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, in collaboration with several partners, have discovered a less-expensive, more energy-efficient way to produce alane — aluminum trihydride — a hydrogen source widely considered to be a technological dead-end for use in automotive vehicles.
