Physicists Switch Magnetic State Using Spin Current
When Carnegie Mellon University doctoral candidates I-Hsuan Kao and Ryan Muzzio started working together a switch flicked on. Then off. Working in the Department of Physics ' Lab for Investigating Quantum Materials, Interfaces and Devices (LIQUID) Group , Kao, Muzzio and other research partners were able to show proof of concept that running an electrical current through a novel two-dimensional material could control the magnetic state of a neighboring magnetic material without the need of applying an external magnetic field.

Heaviest neutron star to date is a ’black widow’ eating its mate
A spinning neutron star periodically swings its radio (green) and gamma-ray (magenta) beams past Earth in this artist's concept of a black widow pulsar. The neutron star/pulsar heats the facing side of its stellar partner (right) to temperatures twice as hot as the sun's surface and slowly evaporates it.
