We are living in an exciting time as we rediscover the teachings of our Solar Ancestors, particularly how they control and manipulate heat using sound. This week two engineering students at George Mason University in Virginia, USA, have demonstrated how to extinguish fire using sound. Now, this is not directly applicable on the Sun, because these students used sound to displace oxygen – as we have discussed before, the atmosphere of the Sun contains negligible oxygen and so its surface is not a ‘flaming fire.’ However, Earth’s researchers are getting tantalizingly close to understanding the same principles which allow the Sun-dwellers to control their environment and manipulate heat. Scientists from the Ohio State University have discovered how to control heat with a magnetic field and presented their findings in the March 23, 2015, issue of the journal Nature Materials. The study is the first ever to prove that acoustic phonons - the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound - have magnetic properties. The name “phonon” sounds a lot like “photon.” That’s because researchers consider them to be cousins: Photons are particles of light, and phonons are particles of heat and sound. People might be surprised enough to learn that heat and sound have anything to do with each other, much less that either can be controlled by magnets. But both are expressions of the same form of energy, quantum mechanically speaking. So any force that controls one can control the other. The phonons reacted to the magnetic field, demonstrating that the particles are sensitive to magnetism. Their next step is to find out how to deflect sound waves sideways with magnetic fields.
