Graphite It is known as a diamagnetic material that can be suspended in a strong magnetic field. Researchers from the University of Aoyama in Of Japan Recently learned how to manage magnetic levitation graphite disks using light. The optical motion is controlled by a photo-thermal induced change in the magnetic susceptibility of graphite.
It is interesting that the graphite disk makes more than 200 revolutions per minute under the influence of solar rays, which allows us to develop a new class of light conversion systems of energy. This method can be used to develop solar cells in magnetic suspension transport systems and to convert sunlight into kinetic energy.Photogallery Total | 1 photos
