In solution, tiny magnetic wires scatter light

...cribed how suspended nickel wires - each 200 times thinner than a human hair - could one day serve as magneto-optical switches. The switches could aid in fields such as photonics, where light, rather than electricity, relays information. "In a broader sense, it is also helpful to study how these wires behave...
