  1. Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering Recognizes a Magnetic Discovery

    Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering Recognizes a Magnetic Discovery
    The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering — called the “Nobel for engineering” — recognized the importance and ubiquitousness of magnets by naming Japanese scientist Masato Sagawa the 2022 laureate. Sagawa invented the neodymium-iron-boron (Nd-Fe-B) magnet, which is the strongest permanent magnet in widespread use today. They’re everywhere around us in the products we use every day, like cars, cellphones, and computers.   It’s relevant to note that America’s Dr. John Croat simultaneously came up with the same material solution when working with General Motors. Sagawa’s manufacturing process, however, gave him the upper hand.  Continue reading →
