Latest High-temperature superconductivity Stories
Classical and high-temperature superconductors differ hugely in the value of the critical temperatures at which they lose all electrical resistance.
Understanding superconductivity – whereby certain materials can conduct electricity without any loss of energy – has proved to be one of the most persistent problems in modern physics.
Scientists introduce a general theoretical approach that describes all known forms of high-temperature superconductivity and their "intertwined" phases
Transparency Market Research adds new "Global Superconductors Market - industry Analysis, Share, Size, Growth, and Forecast, 2012 - 2018" market research report to its report store.
A German-French research team has constructed a new model that explains how the so-called pseudogap state forms in high-temperature superconductors.
Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory have discovered surprising changes in electrical resistivity in iron-based superconductors.
In their latest experiment, Prof. Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter at the Hamburg-based Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) and Dr. Michael Gensch from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) investigated together with other colleagues from the HZDR, the United Kingdom, and Japan if and how superconductivity can be systematically controlled.
To engineers, it’s a tale as old as time: Electrical current is carried through materials by flowing electrons.
A multi-university team of researchers has artificially engineered a unique multilayer material that could lead to breakthroughs in both superconductivity research and in real-world applications.
Over the last quarter century, scientists have discovered a handful of materials that can be converted from magnetic insulators or metals into "superconductors" able to carry electrical current with no energy loss-an enormously promising idea for new types of zero-resistance electronics and energy-storage and transmission systems.
