Recently, doctoral student Ren Shuai from the Multi-disciplinary Materials Research Center of XJTU Frontier Institute of Science and Technology discovered a magnetostrictive effect through a new principle, and has got a greater magnetostrictive effect under a small driving magnetic field. Hopefully, this discovery will offer a novel approach for designing high-performance magnetostriction material.
The results of the study were published online on September 23, 2017, on Physical Review Letter, a flagship journal of physics, with the title “Low-Field-Triggered Large Magnetostriction in Iron-Palladium Strain Glass Alloys”. This article was chosen as PRL Editors’ Suggestion.
The results of the the study are expected to trigger a new round of upsurge of research on magnetostrictive materials.
