Magnetic Electricity Industries Applications

Finally, researchers were able to discover a magnetic equivalent to that of electricity, where, single magnetic charges could interact and behave like electrical ones. Using magnetic monopoles that are found in unique ice crystals are used. This is the first time something like this has been done.

According to the team, the monopoles combine to form "magnetic current" that is very similar to electricity. Only the movement of electrons generated electric current, where the magnetic poles are allowed to move freely. They’ve named this phenomenon as "magnetricity", which can be used in computing or magnetic storage. Though there are protons and neutrons, which carry positive and negative electric charges, there were no materials that carried magnetic charges. Instead, every magnet by itself has a north and south pole.

In September 2009, two different research groups identified monopoles - "particles" that carry magnetic charge. However, they are only found in spin ice crystals. These crystals are made of pyramids of charged ions, or atoms that when cooled down to really low temperatures, show discrete and tiny packets of magnetic charge. One team also showed how magnetic current can be created just like electric current, by moving electrons.

Spin ice is a substance, which does not have just one single minimal-energy state. In other words, it has "spin" freedom degrees, whereas, it is a magnet that has different interactions that prevent it from freezing fully. They have lower temperature and their residual entropy is very similar to that of crystalline water ice. Well known materials with such properties include holmium titanate and dysprosium titanate.

However, Professor Bramwell said that this discovery will in no way replace, or be touted as an alternative to electricity. Instead, this energy is for a different purpose and could be used in improving computing experience and power.
