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.
As part of an ongoing effort to uncover details of how high-temperature superconductors carry electrical current with no resistance, scientists at Johns Hopkins University and the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have measured fluctuations in superconductivity across a wide range of temperatures using terahertz spectroscopy.
Materialâ€™s fluctuating response to a magnetic field could lead to switchable superconducting wires.
Findings may lead to precision engineering of superconducting thin films for electronic devices.
U.S. scientists have created ultra thin films that can be used to form superconductors. The new advancement could lead to faster, more energy efficient electronics.
