A Novel form of Magnetism Found

A Novel form of Magnetism Found

A group of researchers from MIT has been claiming that they have found a whole new form of magnetism, which is known as quantum spin liquid.

It is said to be the third type of magnetism ever being found. To talk about all the magnetism, the first one is ferromagnetism, which let artworks to remain stick on fridge. The second type is Antiferromagnetism.

The third type of magnetism is said to be quantum spin liquid (QSL), which has been recently found. Young Lee, who is the MIT professor of physics, said that it took 10 months for researchers to develop the new form of magnetism.

He said that they have not found any sort of the magnetic orientations. "But there is a strong interaction between them, and due to quantum effects, they don't lock in place", he further affirmed.

Subir Sachdev, who is a professor of physics at Harvard University and was not involved in the study, said that he was quite excited to know about the finding of the new form of magnetism. He affirmed that the discovery has opened a new arena in the quantum entanglement study. There are chances that the new form of magnetism acts as a form of data storage.
