Magnetic Levitation in the News

Case closed on mystery of why a spinning magnet can levitate other magnets
When a permanent ‘rotor’ magnet was rotated at around 200Hz perpendicular to its north–south axis, another magnet, nicknamed the ‘floater’, could levitate above it, spinning synchronously with the ... continued..
New type of magnetic levitation makes its debut
(Courtesy: R Bjørk) Magnetic levitation is already employed in systems such as Maglev trains, flywheels and high-speed machinery. Now researchers at the Technical University of Denmark have given this ... continued..
Solved: How a spinning magnet cause other magnets to levitate
Magnetic levitation demonstrated using a Dremel tool spinning a magnet at 266 Hz. The rotor magnet is 7x7x7 mm3 and the floater magnet is 6x6x6 mm3. This video show the physics described in the ... continued..
