About CMI

The CMI webinar with Scott K. McCall at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was Nov. 15. He will present "Exchange Spring Magnets: An Approach to Higher Energy Density Magnets." Exchange spring magnets are a hybrid of two types of magnets, with the best properties of both. A recording is available online.

CMI Highlights

CMI-funded research has led to a new magnet. Researchers based at Ames Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Uppsala University proposed the SmCoNiFe3 magnet. This development of the SmCo5 type substitutes most of the cobalt with iron and nickel. The research is highlighted in the journal Physical Review B, and described in LLNL news
