Latest 10 inventions in physics

Among the latest 10 inventions in physics, it is important to mention that scientists at the University of Chicago have found a way to allow magnetic sensors operate at the high temperatures, a really useful invention for ceramic engines in automobiles and aircraft of the future. To construct the sensors, the scientists required slightly degrading patterns of a semiconductor material, named indium antimonide, highly appreciated for its purity.

The operation of the majority of magnetic sensors is based on detecting how a magnetic field changes an electron's path. Commonly used sensors are not able to operate at high temperatures, reaching hundreds of degrees. The indium antimonide magnetosensors is developed to function at such temperatures without any degradation.
