Texas A&M Chemists Use Lasers to Generate Strong Magnetic Field in Gold Nanoparticles

“Before starting these experiments, we published a manuscript of a theoretical study in which we outlined many of these predictions. That said, we were unsure if it would actually be possible to measure the effect, because there was significant uncertainty about the magnitude of the magnetism and other assumptions in our theoretical analysis. It was very thrilling when we started collecting the data, and the signal was very clear, even stronger than we predicted.”
