Just wanted to share a new discovery that will supposedly in the future enable for optical devices to work with the help of magnetic field instead of
They are, however, still unable to foretell where excatly this magnetic liquid crystal can be used...
Slovenian scientists have succeed in creating a magnetic liquid crystal, becoming the first in the world to do so after more than 40 years of
unsuccessful attempts, an article published on Thursday in the acclaimed British magazine Nature shows.
The discovery opens numerous new possibilities, an example being optic devices that can be steered by very small magnetic fields as opposed to
Also this compound is believed to be very useful in the future. The material operates at higher frequencies and would possibly be able to protect us
from electromagnetic radiation, explains Darja Lisjak, from the IJS.
