Electricity from Thermal Activity in Magnets

SpaceNut .... I hope it is acceptable to open a new topic for the research reported in this link: … 00256.html

As I understand the report, from an initial scan, researchers at multiple institutions have found a way to generate electricity by capturing tiny impulses of equally tiny magnets in material previously thought to be useless.

That's an oversimplification, of course, but hopefully it will be enough to encourage someone to read the link.

Re: Electricity from Thermal Activity in Magnets

A stationary magnet inside a coil will not produce energy but a magnet that is being turn off by heat and the allowed to cool would create a power pulse in the coil with the rate of the cycle of hot to cold. Find that delta for the change in temp would make an AC current possible.
