Latest High-temperature superconductivity Stories
It's a basic technique learned early, maybe even before kindergarten: Pulling things apart - from toy cars to complicated electronic materials - can reveal a lot about how they work.
Tel Aviv University researchers marry old and new to create the next generation of superconductors.
Neutron scattering studies of "cobalt blue," a compound prized by artists for its lustrous blue hue, are revealing unique magnetic characteristics that could answer questions about mysterious properties in other materials.
FARMINGTON, Conn., Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Information, Inc.
Although high-temperature superconductors are widely used in technologies such as MRI machines, explaining the unusual properties of these materials remains an unsolved problem for theoretical physicists.
A team of scientists studying the parent compound of a cuprate (copper-oxide) superconductor has discovered a link between two different states, or phases, of that matter - and written a mathematical theory to describe the relationship.
If there were a Hall of Fame for materials, manganites would be among its members.
In recent years, UC Santa Barbara scientists showed that they could reproduce a basic superconductor using Einstein's general theory of relativity.
Bubbles are blocking the current path of one of the most promising high temperature superconducting materials, new research suggests.
Like atomic-level bricklayers, researchers from the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory are using a precise atom-by-atom layering technique to fabricate an ultrathin transistor-like field effect device to study the conditions that turn insulating materials into high-temperature superconductors.
