Picture of the day


Magnetic field lines around an iron wire


University of Cambridge Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy Gallery, Magnetic field lines around an iron wire


The image shows magnetic field lines around the end of an iron wire, which is magnetized along its length. The field of view is approximately 1┬Ám. The image was acquired using electron holography in a field emission gun transmission electron microscope. (click to see full sized version)
