  • Interesting fact: Earth's magnetic field has been weakening. It seems to have lost 15% of its strength since 1670. At the present rate of decrease, it will reach zero in 2,000 years. Between the years 3500 and 4500, the magnetic field will not be sufficiently strong enough to ward off charged radiation from outer space.
    • n Magnetization The act of magnetizing, or the state of being magnetized.

In poetry:

Stay, I cannot live without thee,
Or, if thou wilt go, the magnet
Of thine eye must make me follow.
All my happiness is anchored
There. Return, Daria. . . .
"The Purgatory Of St. Patrick - Act III" by Denis Florence MacCarthy
We would fly with all things to the goal of their flying,
We would turn with all things to the magnetic star,
But we never can live, because of our dying,
And we never can be, for the things that we are.

Father of lights! what sunny seed,
What glance of day hast Thou confined
Into this bird? To all the breed
This busy ray Thou hast assigned;
Their magnetism works all night,
And dreams of paradise and light.
"Cock-Crowing" by Henry Vaughan
He dozes, aged with watches passed--
Years, years of pacing to and fro;
He dozes, nor attends the stir
In bullioned standards rustling low,
Nor minds the blades whose secret thrill
Perverts overhead the magnet's Polar will:--
"The Haglets" by Herman Melville
Oh, the great city's madness when at nightfall
The crippled trees gape by the blackened wall,
The spirit of evil peers from a silver mask;
Lights with magnetic scourge drive off the stony night.
Oh, the sunken pealing of evening bells.
"To The Silenced" by Georg Trakl
Then the few whose spirits float above the wreck of happiness
Are driven o'er the shoals of guilt, or ocean of excess:
The magnet of their course is gone, or only points in vain
The shore to which their shivered sail shall never stretch again.

Trapping, anomalous transport and quasi-coherent structures in magnetically confined plasmas
The amount of material in the walls of the magnet is less than 10% of a radiation length per side, which makes it possible that an electron beam can penetrate the walls of the magnet and still be used for a test inside the magnet.
A Large TPC Prototype with MPGD Readout: Status and Plans
The magnet is also designed so that it can be moved while cold, so that the magnet as a whole can be placed on a movable stage in the beam, and the complete active area of the chamber inside the magnet can be scanned with beam.
A Large TPC Prototype with MPGD Readout: Status and Plans
Following the previous section and building on the behavior of the solar magnetic field, we consider magnetic fields with coherence lengths much smaller than the radius of the disk r, rather than the large scale magnetic field that is used in many jet-launching models.

The magnetic energy of a nanometric particle is then determined by its magnetic moment orientation, and has a number of stable directions separated by potential barriers (associated with the magnetic anisotropy).
On the Statics and Dynamics of Magneto-Anisotropic Nanoparticles
All these contributions give rise to a dependence of the energy of the nanoparticle on the orientation of its magnetic moment, i.e., in the absence of an external magnetic field the magnetic properties of the system are anisotropic.
On the Statics and Dynamics of Magneto-Anisotropic Nanoparticles
We shall now study the magnetization of classical magnetic moments with axially symmetric magnetic anisotropy.
On the Statics and Dynamics of Magneto-Anisotropic Nanoparticles
The magnetization then depends on the field and temperature via B/T . A related salient result is that in a liquid suspension of magnetic particles (usually called magnetic fluid or ferrofluid) with a general single-particle magnetic anisotropy, the magnetization is also given by the Langevin result (Krueger, 1979).
On the Statics and Dynamics of Magneto-Anisotropic Nanoparticles
In contrast to the longitudinal-field case, where the anisotropy energy favors the alignment of the magnetic moment in the field direction, in the transverse case the anisotropy hinders the magnetization process, and the magnetization curve goes below the Langevin curve.
On the Statics and Dynamics of Magneto-Anisotropic Nanoparticles
The initial magnetic field is entirely contained within the matter, so that there is no net magnetic flux and no magnetic field on either the outer boundary or the event horizon.

Two types of measurements are typically made: “spin valve” in a magnetic field parallel to the plane of magnetization, and spin precession in a magnetic field perpendicular to the plane of magnetization.
