ICN2 in the Media: High Temperature Magnetic Stabilization of Cobalt Nanoparticles

ICREA Prof Josep Nogués is the last author of a work published in Physical Review Letters describing how low-blocking-temperature ferromagnetic Co nanoparticles become magnetically stable above 400 K (126.85 degrees Celsius) thanks to the Antiferromagnetic Proximity Effect. The work, with researchers from the University of Castilla la Mancha as first authors, gathered some attention from the media.


High Temperature Magnetic Stabilization of Cobalt Nanoparticles

A work published in Physical Review Letters, with ICREA Prof Josep Nogués, Group Leader at ICN2, as its last author, explains how an Antiferromagnetic Proximity Effect makes the Magnetic Stabilization possible above 400 K (126.85 degrees Celsius). This achievement might have crucial implications for ultrahigh density recording among other applications.
