How iron feels the heat

Researchers have known that the arrangement of the atoms in a piece of iron changes several times before melting — but the details of just how and why this property contributes to the metal’s thermodynamic stability remained a mystery. Recent work at Caltech provides evidence for how iron’s magnetism plays a role in this curious property–an understanding that could help researchers develop better and stronger steel. —> Read More Here
