Title: Polishing method and device

Abstract: A system for polishing a surface including a polishing material and one or more magnetic means in contact with the polishing material. The one or more magnetic means react upon the polishing material to plasticize it, whereby the plasticized material is then used to polish the surface. Preferably the polishing material intermittently and repeatedly contacts with the surface for polishing. A method for polishing a planar surface including bringing two or more magnetic means into contact with a polishing material, thereby plasticizing the polishing material. Then a planar side of the surface contacts the plasticized polishing material, so that the plasticized polishing material polishes the surface. Upon contact with the surface, the plasticized polishing material liquidizes. After termination of the contact with the surface, the liquidized polishing material solidifies. The surface is moved and the above steps are repeated a multiplicity of times until the surface is polished.
