A study based on a surprising discovery published in the journal Science this week may aid the clarification of superconductivity mechanism at higher temperature and frictionless electricity transmission. The researchers conducted tests on frustrated magnets (which are named so since they should exhibit magnetic properties at low temperatures but actually do not) to verify whether they follow Hall Effect.

On application of magnetic field to a conductor like copper ribbon in which electric field exists, the current undergoes deflection towards one side of the ribbon. E.H. Hall was the first to observe this deflection in 1879. The phenomenon at present finds use in sensors for computer printers and oth...
