Any overheated motor may of course "seize" without warning; but so many complaints have reached us of accidents similar to yours while shooting the Aurora that we are inclined to believe with Lavalle that the upper strata of the Aurora Borealis are practically one big electric "leak," and that the paralysis of your engines was due to complete magnetization of all metallic parts.
2A) indicates that over 50% of magnetization is gained already by 100 mT in both localities.
To make a single material that has these two distinct properties -- magnetization and electrical polarization -- is difficult because the electronic requirements for obtaining them in a material are typically contradictory: materials characteristics, such as the crystal structure or the atomic composition, which favor polarization often disfavor magnetization.
The magnetization orientation of the pinned layer is permanently fixed during operation, and that of the storage layer is not.
Perpendicular magnetization has also resolved a major dilemma manufacturers faced previously: making a tradeoff between SRAM-like performance and lower power draw.
Initial solutions to the long acquisition times for 3-dimensional FSE imaging focused on obtaining more echoes per magnetization pulse (i.
Magnetization curves were obtained in an AGGPAR 4500 vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM), calibrated against a cylindrical nickel standard at room temperature (cycle time = 1 s; hysteresis cycle time = 10 min).
Among specific topics are defects in solids, the decline of Old Quantum Theory, characteristics of Fermi level, intrinsic semiconductors, the variation of photoconductivity with illumination, the origin of magnetization, and a classification of superconductors by their magnetic field behavior.
For magnetic anomaly data to provide independent estimates of flow thickness, crustal magnetization over the old and new lavas must be determined by representative rock sampling.

Computer hard drives read and write data by flipping the magnetization of memory cells with magnetic fields.
The new solid silicone rubber thus lends itself to the manufacture of magnetizable molded parts and profiles that, after magnetization, act like weak permanent magnets.
