There are several materials that evince a clear phase shift in all thermodynamic properties when the temperature falls below a certain transitional temperature, but no one has been able to explain the new collective order in the material. Until now, it has been called the hidden order.
Extremely small magnetic fluctuations prompt changes in the macroscopic properties of the material, so an entirely new phase arises, with different properties.
“Never before have we seen the so-called â€˜magnetic spin excitations’ produce a phase transition and the formation of a new phase. In ordinary material this excitation cannot change the phase and properties of the material because it is too weak. But now we have shown that this is in fact possible,” says Peter Oppeneer.
In the same way, details seem to alter the big picture when they get enough momentum. The microcosm is a reflection of the macrocosm, but it may occur in stages, like a Russian doll or measuring cups.
One within another.
