Thomas Russell ~ New Magnetic Liquid article published in Science

A study published today in Science explains how Professor Russell and collaborators have made new magnetic devices out of liquids.

“We’ve made a new material that has all the characteristics of an ordinary magnet, but we can change its shape, and conform it to different applications because it is a liquid,” said Thomas Russell, a polymer scientist at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the study’s lead author. “It’s very unique.”
