Carbon Magnetism joins Science NEWS MAGAZINE:
Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) published a press release about Prof. Pablo Esquinazi XMCD work (pubblication section). Several internet news magazines already picked up on the news and H. Ohldag also received a request for an interview from Science News Magazine, which will be published when ready.
