Exploration into quantum mechanics with the use of magnets allows for the incredible phenomena of quantum levitation or quantum locking, with the magnet being locked in space above a superconductor cooled with liquid nitrogen.

Researchers at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California Berkeley announced the development of a two-dimensional cobalt-doped zinc oxide magnet that operates at room temperature and could lead to new applications in computing, electronics, and new tools for the study of quantum physics.

The ultrathin magnet, recently reported in the journa...
