The Origin of Magnetic Forces

ATOMIC VISUALS.
“Visualization of the origin of magnetic forces by atomic resolution electron microscopy.”
 
AN ATOMIC MAGNETISM FIRST.
“The joint development team of Professor Shibata (the University of Tokyo), JEOL Ltd. and Monash University succeeded in directly observing an atomic magnetic field, the origin of magnets (magnetic force), for the first time in the world. The observation was conducted using the newly developed Magnetic-field-free Atomic-Resolution STEM (MARS).”
 
DOUBLE SUCCESS.
“This team had already succeeded in observing the electric field inside atoms for the first time in 2012. However, since the magnetic fields in atoms are extremely weak compared with electric fields, the technology to observe the magnetic fields had been unexplored since the development of electron microscopes.”
 
HISTORIC. “This is an epoch-making achievement that will rewrite the history of microscope development.”
 
ORIGIN OF MAGNETS.
“Using this new lens, the team realized atomic observation of magnetic materials, which is not affected by the lens magnetic field. The team’s next goal was to observe the magnetic fields of atoms, which are the origin of magnets (magnetic force), and they continued technological development to achieve the goal.”
