Magnetically lifted graphite moves by laser, may lead to light-based maglev vehicles (video)

By Jon Fingas Magnetic levitation is central to the fastest trains we know today, but it’s that dependence on electromagnets and rails that limits how and where it’s used for transportation. Aoyama Gakuin University has a unique alternative: changing the material properties themselves. By floating graphite over a bed of circular magnets, taking advantage of […]
