A light-sensitive plastic magnet
offers new opportunities for light-controlled magnetic materials. The new plastic magnet becomes 1.5 times more magnetic when blue light shines on it. Green light partially reverses the effect. Such magnets have potential for new applications in electronic data storage. The magnet functions up to a temperature of 75 K. This temperature approaches that of today's high-temperature superconductors. 11:38:40 AM
