On April 8, 2011, the scientific community will celebrate the centennial of the discovery of superconductivityâ€”the ability of certain materials to conduct electricity without resistance when cooled below a specific temperature.
Scientists have found the strongest evidence yet that a puzzling gap in the electronic structures of some high-temperature superconductors could indicate a new phase of matter.
LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) announced today the signing of a long-term contract with Genesis Medical Imaging, Inc., one of the United States' largest independent MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) service providers based in Huntley, Illinois.

An Iowa State theoretical physicist will describe the latest ideas in high-temperature superconductivity during the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science Feb. 17-21 in Washington, D.C.
An electromagnet, a magnet whose magnetic field is produced by the flow of electric current, works until the electric current ceases. The magnetic field in a simple electromagnet is created by a wire passing through it with an electric current. The strength of the magnet depends on the amount of current. By making the wire into a coil the magnetic field is concentrated. A straight tube coil is a solenoid. A stronger magnetic field can be produced by putting a ferromagnetic material, such as...
