DailyTech – New Nanomagnets Can Sniff Out Magnetism, Make Nanomemory

Scientists develop new nanotube structures to act as mini-magnet detectors

The new process involves inserting cobalt nanoclusters between 1 nm and 10 nm into a single multi-walled carbon nanotube.  As the carbon nanotube is an excellent conductor, it is also sensitive to magnetic activity, such as that of the cobalt nanoclusters.  The result is a magnetic nanomaterial, which also can sense electrically other magnetic nanofields.
