Magnetic Nanoparticles

  1. Jul 4, 2014 #1
    Hello Everybody,

    i would like to ask if anyone around here has any prior knowledge regarding magnetic nanoparticles and their properties and could provide me with a useful link so that i can search deeper and learn more. What i would like mostly to know is if they can emit a magnetic field and the strength of their magnetic field.

    Thank you!

    Magnetic materials possess a magnetic field, they do not "emit" one.
    The presence of a magnetic field is why the particle is called magnetic - it's what the word means - so magnetic nanoparticles possess a magnetic field.

    The field strength depends on the material properties of the individual particle and it's synthesis - their properties can vary quite a bit. Perhaps you can be more specific?

    No worries - sometimes it's just knowing how to sort through information.
