GENICHESK. TAVRIA. The first type of magnetism was discovered by humans as early as 2500 B.C. The second type was discovered last century. Finally, last week scientists reported the discovery of the third type of magnetism. The Financial Times informs us.

Usually, when we hear the word "magnetism", we think of ferromagnetism. It's a phenomenon we can observe when we attach magnets to the refrigerator. In the 1930s, antiferromagnetism was discovered. The article explains that "in these materials, neighboring electrons have an alternating, rather than parallel, spin," internal magnetism is neutralized on a large scale, causing such objects to neither attract nor repel.

"As well as adding mystique to a phenomenon that has long fascinated humans, this new form, called altermagnetism, could lead to more energy-efficient computation," is stated in the article.

Essentially, it combines two previous types of magnetism, taking their best qualities. "The opposing spins would cancel each other out, but additional complexity in the crystal structure produced an internal magnetic field about a thousand times stronger than that of a fridge magnet." This discovery could be useful for further scientific discoveries.

Scientists believe that new types of magnetism may be discovered in the future.

Earlier we reported that astronomers discovered universe's brightest object.
