Temperature of magnetic materials can be manipulated through simple redirection of charge current.

For the first time in the world, NIMS and Tohoku University jointly observed an anisotropic magneto-Peltier effect - a thermoelectric conversion phenomenon in which simple redirection of a charge current in a magnetic material induces heating and cooling.
