Local Magnetic Anisotropy (image) DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory Share Print E-Mail 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 Nature.
