A few researchers in the laboratories of the National University of Singapore (NUS) have developed an ingenious new concept for manufacturing nano-structures using magnetism.
This concept utilizes nano cavities to create highly miniaturized structures that are inspired by the natural growth of trees and grasses. Their study was published recently in Nature Nanotechnology.
The nano cavities utilize nano magnets that were created by the researchers through a technique called ionization. The creation of such nano cavities need to be carefully controlled to emit controlled magnetic fields with the right frequency.
This frequency is extremely important because it will allow the researchers to make structures with dimensions much smaller than those found in real life. These structures would then be propelled along the direction of their movement using high-speed electric wheels. In this way, they create what is known as nano-roofs, which are structures that attach to roofs.
Such structures are thought to function just like the nanometer-sized shells that protect the front surfaces of computers. They would, however, fly through the air in the nano-aurousphic regime. The study’s core researcher, Dr. Zhi Zhong, envisioned these flying nano-roof structures as being used in the future for various purposes.
For instance, he says that they could be designed to protect space vehicles from solar winds and to protect satellites from space weather. He also suggests that such structures might be used in “computational foam” and “lightning rod” technology.
It is unknown at this time if the nanothermics would be utilized in defense against intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICM), which are capable of reaching speeds of over 7 km/s. One of the goals of the U.S. military is to boost the defenses of its satellites and other space assets. Such a feat, if it is realized, would enable the United States to retain dominance in space.
Nano Structures in Anti-Ferm Magnets
Although the U.S. military has not yet developed such structures, the team members from NUS based in the United States and therefore, would become the first to develop them. Dr. Zhi Zhong says that the nanothermics can be used for defense against gamma radiation, high energy x-rays, nuclear weapons and high-energy lasers.
These devices are able to create structures that are very thin while remaining structurally intact when hit by these energy beams. This would allow them to fly through magnetic fields and low Earth orbit and go on to strike their target.
It is also not clear how such nanothermics would allow for the removal of charged particles from its internal structure. This would be useful in manufacturing such materials as batteries and other electric storage devices. In fact, many materials used in such batteries are constructed using nanothermics.
The creation of these magnetic structures is said to be possible because of a concept called the “Wiggles.” This is a model of a structure where the crystalline material at the junctions of two magnets experiences what is called a “Wiggle” when they are forced apart by an external magnetic field. Once the structures are created, they will grow and then collapse in on themselves to form a stable work of art.
This would allow researchers to study the real properties of these microscopic structures under laboratory conditions. In so doing, they would be better equipped to understand the real usefulness of such nanothermics in defense against such high energy beams as those directed at the United States’ space shuttles and missiles.
Because of the promise of these new discoveries, it would not be surprising if this new nano structure research were able to find applications in the fields of medicine and industry some day. As other scientists continue their studies into the mysteries of the nano-world, this new knowledge may be made available to the public in the near future.
Some speculate that once this process is mastered, it may be possible to use these structures to create artificial magnetic fields that would be useful in defense against harmful manmade energy beams. Such a field would be useful in protecting the human body from electromagnetic radiation from x-rays and gamma rays, which are some of the most common sources of harm in modern society.
