Letter to Nature: observation of crystallites of magnetic charges in artificial spin ice.

Magnetic order in kagome spin ice

In a letter to Nature, a team led by Peter Schiffer (Illinois) and Vin Crespi has demonstrated a protocol for thermalizing artificial spin ices. Their experiments reveal unprecedented magnetic order in artificial square ice and direct visual evidence for magnetic charge crystallization in artificial kagome ice.
