New “whirling” state of matter discovered in an element of the periodic table"
June 4, 2020
Am posting this paper on spin glass magnetic domains because of the material science,
and the role of magnetic materials in some of the best LANR systems
such as the M-Nanors and on Pd itself in the active CF/LANR lattice,
and their possible role in other putative over-unity systems such as Brian Ahern's
Manelis Engine. The latter has interacting magnetic moments
within the lattice, producing complicated arrays, briefly covered in: Quasiparticles,
Collective Excitations and Higher-Order Collective Quasi-Excitations
in Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reactions, J. Condensed Matter Nucl. Sci. 24, 130-145 (2017),
and in Oscillating Excess Power Gain and Coerced Magnetic Domains in M-NANOR-type
CF/LANR Components", J. Condensed Matter Nucl. Sci. 22, 35-46 (2017).
One of Brian Josephson's magnetic domains is seen in a photograph shown below
taken of one of their/his (dissected and experimented upon) Manelis billet a few years ago.
Left side is before, and right side is after a brief magnetization. The Paired photo is from one of
the MIT ad hoc Colloquia, thereafter.
Perhaps these spin glass magnetic state(s) need consideration elsewhere.

"The strongest permanent magnets today contain a mix of the elements neodymium and iron.
However, neodymium on its own does not behave like any known magnet ....
Magnets are defined by a north and south pole. ... many atomic magnets, so-called 'spins',
that are all aligned along the same direction and define the north and south pole.
Quite differently, some alloy materials can be a 'spin glass,' randomly placed spins point
in all kinds of directions. Spin glasses derive their name-sake from the amorphous
evolving structure of the atoms in a piece of glass. In this way, spin glasses
link magnetic behaviour to phenomena in softer matter, like liquids and gels.
Spin glasses have been known to sometimes occur in alloys, which are combinations
of metals with one or more other elements and with an amorphous structure,
but never in pure elements of the periodic table."
