Scientists working at SLAC have for the first time directly observed a phenomenon that allows magnetic waves to travel a long distance with no resistance.
Image - X-rays at SSRL (purple) measure a special type of magnetic wave, called a spin wave soliton, that has the ability to hold its shape as it moves across a magnetic material. The arrows represent the magentic orientation in the material.
