How Magnetic Moments in MnO Fluctuate at Different Temperatures

An animation showing how the magnetic moments in manganese oxide (MnO) fluctuate at different temperatures. The orderly antiparallel alignment of the Mn ions is maintained at lower temperatures. At higher temperatures, this long-range order disappears, but short-range correlations persist underneath the thermal fluctuations.

    Antifogging Short

    Split-screen video captures water droplets condensing on the cylindrical nanotexture (left) and nanocone texture (right) for 30 seconds. Neighboring droplets on the nanocone texture combine and spontaneously jump off, but those on the nanocylinder texture become stuck. Credit: David Quéré, ... more

    Origin of High-Temperature Superconductivity in Copper-Oxide Compound

    Brookhaven Lab physicist Ivan Bozovic explains why a copper-oxide compound can conduct electricity without resistance at temperatures well above those required by conventional superconductors. more
