Paramagnetic Spins Take Electrons for a Ride

Magnon-electron drag is an advective effect between magnons (waves of precession in the spins of individual atoms & represented as little grey cones) and electrons (green dots).

An international team of researchers has observed that local thermal perturbations of spins in a solid can convert heat to energy even in a paramagnetic material - where spins weren't thought to correlate long enough to do so. This effect, which the researchers call "paramagnon drag thermopower," converts
