discovered magnetic material is having physicists pondering the practical
applications and where the possibilities can take them. Highly sensitive, it is
suspected it transform the functioning properties of hard drives and storage
devices to an extent that is yet unimaginable.
Bilaver, as it’s
being called, requires only the slightest of temperature shifts to create a
massive shift in its magnetism properties making it an incredibly fascinating
potential for computer components and applications. Currently, there are no
other materials that exist that have a similar property. This variable action
is what studies are focused on, possibly a rival to replace current applied
stems not only from its unique properties, but also that engineers can
duplicate the reactions in bilaver. The material is a combination of thin
layers of nickel and alternating vanadium oxide, which when sandwiched, becomes
incredibly responsive to slight shifts in temperature. This means huge shifts
in magnetism can be controlled in a relatively low range of heat, making the
application highly attractive in computer engineering.
temperatures, the oxidizer works as an insulator, while at higher it becomes a
metal. It is in the in between where the magnetic fluxes are controlled.
Applying this to computer memory systems is the first task, as the inherent and
stability controlled fluctuations would be applied to memory storage
technology. Storage needs to not only be stable when in practical use, but also
reversible to control memory storage and allow RAM functions to occur.
What’s Happening Today
most highly engineered current market technology requires laser application to
the storage surface, great amounts of energy expended in order to perform these
simple functions. With bilaver, the material requires much less heat and
therefore can be controlled much more economically.
potential uses could see the material being applied to transformer use as a
dual use component of the electrical process and as a heat insulator. Sudden
changes in current can super heat components, and it is suggested that
installing or replacing current factions within transformer, a decrease in
failure from extreme heat could very well be achieved.
in California, Stanford Magnets has been involved in the R&D and sales of
Neodymium magnets and SmCo magnets, ceramic magnets, flexible magnets and
magnetic assemblies since the mid of 1980s. We supply all these types of
magnets in a wide range of shapes, sizes and grades.
