nano-magnets the key to free light from earth's magnetic field are made in nature

Bacteria make nanomagnets for navigating the oceans - life - 12 August 2009 - New Scientist

this is the nano-magnets that i am incorporating into my phosphorus/nanomagnet meta material. the metamaterial will be able to take the energy of charged particles in the air (called backround radiation) and convert the energy into light. as the particles whiz pass the nanomagnets they generate small electric eddies that make the phosphorus component glow. metamaterials are materials that are engineered at the nano-scale to do certain things. the ones that manipulate light are called photonic metamaterials.
