Magnetism at Optical Frequencies in Natural Materials
​Abstract: In optics, effects of the optical magnetic field are generally negligible at low intensities.  However in recent optical experiments intense magnetic light scattering has been observed as the result of a dynamic m​agneto-electric interaction that transcends the bounds of the multipole expansion.  The implications of this discovery for generating intense magnetic fields and converting solar energy to electricity with negligible heat generation will be discussed.
