Heat generation through Neel-relaxation is due to rapid changes in the direction of magnetic moments, hindered by anisotropy energy that tends to turn the magnetic domain of the magnetic nanoparticle in a given direction according to their crystal lattice structure.
These polymeric substances are added to a crude oil and the polymer associates with the wax crystal lattice structure in a way that blocks or stearically hinders the complete formation of the wax crystal.
Doping is a fundamental chip making process that modifies the electrical properties of a material by incorporating impurities into its crystal lattice structure. The process is traditionally performed by bombarding the wafer with a beam of dopant ions moving at high speed.
It is any kind of metal such as iron, that has been heated to a liquid and then cooled so quickly its atoms can't form back into their usual crystal lattice structure. The nearly random arrangement of atoms makes metallic glass hard to deform or bend out of shape: The atoms readily spring back into place.
