Nanomagnetic technology can be used to develop devices with more durable batteries and increased storage memories.
Accordingly to the results of a research conduced by UFV Graduates, magnetricity can be used to produce more powerful and smaller cell phones and computers as an alternative to the use of electricity. Devices developed with the use of nanomagnetism have greater potential for information storage and transportation. Researchers of the UFV Graduate Program in Applied Physics have demonstrated for the first time that monopoles can be created in nanostructured magnetic systems – the so called artificial spin ice. In these systems, positive and negative magnetic poles seem to separate. The movement of isolated magnetic charges can generate a current called magnetricity.
