View Full Version : m-state in mainstream science

05-03-2009, 09:17 PM
I've stumbled across a publication in the NanoLetters scientific journal that is made from a reputable university and speaks about magnetic gold nanoparticles. The title is: "Chemically Induced Permanent Magnetism in Au, Ag, and Cu Nanoparticles". They claim to have observed "room-temperature permanent magnetism" for the aforementioned nanoparticles. This is sth extraordinary to claim.
I think they have made some kind m-state matter.

Unfortunatelly, the whole article cannot be viewed for free. I would appreciate it if someone who has access to NanoLetters journal (ex. visit university library) to check this article and inform me if it worths to order it. Mainly I want to see if they describe their production method and if it is easy to replicate. Maybe a new way to produce m-state is found. Thanks.
