Magnetic switch gets closer to application

XMCD-PEEM asymmetry images of FeRh obtained at the Fe L3-edge at 385 K. The presence of blue/red domains at 0 Volts (left panel) are related to the presence of ferromagnetic domains showing thus that the FeRh film is ferromagnetic. After applying 50 V (right panel) the red/blue ferromagnetic domains disappear pointing out that the FeRh film is now antiferromagnetic. Credit: HZB

Scientists from Paris, Newcastle and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin have been able to switch on and off robust ferromagnetism close to room temperature by... [more]
