Anew type of magnet — called a singlet-based magnet — was discovered that differs from conventional magnets in which small magnetic constituents align with one another to create a strong magnetic field. By contrast, the singlet-based magnet has fields that pop in and out of existence, resulting in an unstable force, but one that potentially has more flexibility than conventional counterparts.
