MIT researchers discover a new kind of magnetism

KurzweilAI: "MIT researchers have demonstrated experimentally the existence of a fundamentally new kind of magnetic behavior called a quantum spin liquid (QSL), adding to the two previously known states of magnetism. ‘Quantum spin liquid’ could have applications in new computer memory storage." (Hi-tech)

Captain Tuttle  +   700d ago
"The QSL is a solid crystal, but its magnetic state is described as liquid: Unlike the other two kinds of magnetism, the magnetic orientations of the individual particles within it fluctuate constantly, resembling the constant motion of molecules within a true liquid".

What is this madness?
