Local Magnetic Anisotropy (IMAGE) DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory Caption For the first time, researchers have simulated local magnetic anisotropy at the atomic level in a magnetic material based on experimental data. This figure shows changes in magnetic energy across individual iron and platinum atoms from an FePt nanoparticle. Credit Image courtesy of Markus Eisenbach and <i>Nature</i>.
