Recently I've been interested in delving in deeper on the applications of magnetic wires. From this video, I was curious as to whether these wires (more specifically their enamel coating) were permanent magnets? Electricity and Magnetism Simple Electric Motor and if I use that magnetic wire as an electromagnet (I wrap it around an iron core) and I pass it through a permanent magnet's magnetic field, would that wire be also capable of conducting/ creating electricity, or would the enamel coating prevent that? I've been reading many interesting articles where some chemists are trying to make copper, silver and gold permanent magnets within themselves, by somehow structuring the electrons in a way (the same way the electrons are structured in honey, that defies the laws of thermodynamics) so that these elements (which are perfect for conducting electricity) could also then have the characteristics of permanent magnets in a metastable state. Honey's electrons are in this state, which prevents the honey from crystallizing, and thus the electrons aren't in their natural state in terms of thermal dynamics, and if these chemists somehow find a way to overcome this by finding a metastable state in which copper, silver, and gold act like permanent magnets and the electrons somehow maintain this position, would wires containing these elements still retain their efficiency in conducting electricity? I recommend you read the works of Dr. J.S. Garitaonandia and finally, just as a side question, how would some of you folks theorize the possibility of making gold copper and silver magnetic permanently in a metastable state, so that their electrons remain in that state? Applications for this that I have in mind are improving the efficiency of generators, by perhaps wrapping magnetic wires around permanent magnets (like neodymium magnets) to temporarily create powerful magnets that switch on and off in intervals (so that the stator/rotor may rotate more effectively with less power input necessary). Another possibility of this application is perhaps extending the efficiency and life of permanent magnets? What are your folks' thoughts about all of this?
