Fikri is as sensitive as he is confident in his lyrics, which gently decipher 'the demagnetisation of one's life compass, being fully present in each moment, and allowing it to slowly and organically regain consciousness'.
Theoretically, a strong permanent magnet is characterised by a large remnant magnetic flux (remnant or [B.sub.r]), which must be maintained in the absence of a magnetic field coupled with a large resistance to demagnetisation (coercivity of [H.sub.c] or intrinsic coercivity of [sub.i][H.sub.c]).
During an MRI, Synchrony's magnet freely rotates and self-aligns within its titanium housing, greatly reducing implant torque and the risk of demagnetisation during MRI scans.
Class I -- Reclassification, typically includes services such as buffing, polishing, grinding of scratches and grooves, and demagnetisation. Class II - Refurbishment (Reconditioning) includes all of the services offered by Class I and may also include further actions such as the replacing of rolling elements, cages and/or seals.
MUCH more durable than leather, the lightweight (70g) Aluma Wallet is waterproof and practically indestructible, easily protecting your credit cards from scratches, bending, snapping and demagnetisation.
They are more resistant to demagnetisation than the Alnico materials which make them suitable for use in complex shaped magnets.
"Prior to using the ferromagnetic inks for attaching to human skin, the ink material may be exposed to elevated temperatures to cause demagnetisation," the Telegraph quoted Nokia as saying in the US patent application.
From the geophysical interpretation the better targets appear to be away from the Island where more structural complexity and demagnetisation is seen.
