Carbon nanotubes go magnetic

Abstract:
Physicists have shown that carbon nanotubes can become magnetized when they are placed in contact with a magnetic material. Michael Coey of Trinity College in Dublin and colleagues believe the mechanism relies on the transfer of spin - carried by electrons - from the magnetic substrate to the nanotube.
