"ËœStriped' material offers more clues to high-temperature superconductivity Scientists studying a material that appeared to lose its ability to carry current with no resistance say new measurements reveal that the material is indeed a superconductor "” but only in two dimensions. Equally surprising, this new form of 2-D superconductivity emerges at a higher temperature than ordinary 3-D superconductivity in other compositions of the same material. The research, conducted in...

Laboratory researchers have posited an explanation for superconductivity that may open the door to the discovery of new, unconventional forms of superconductivity. In a November 20 Nature letter, research led by Tuson Park and Joe D. Thompson both of Condensed Matter and Thermal Physics (MPA-10) describes a new explanation for superconductivity in non-traditional materials"”one that describes a potentially new state of matter in which the superconducting material behaves simultaneously...

University of Arizona scientists experimenting with some of the coldest gases in the universe have discovered that when atoms in the gas get cold enough, they can spontaneously spin up into what might be described as quantum mechanical twisters or hurricanes. The surprising experimental results agree with independent numerical simulations produced by collaborating scientists at the University of Queensland in Australia. The Arizona and Queensland researchers are reporting the results of the...

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. "What we have done is we have put together two materials, neither of which is a superconductor, and we found their interface -- where they touch -- is superconducting," said Ivan Bozovic, physicist for the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory. "This superconducting layer is extremely thin. It is...

U.S. physicists say they've created, for the first time, controllable microwave photons and stored them in a superconducting microwave resonator. The University of California-Santa Barbara researchers -- physicists Max Hofheinz, John Martinis and Andrew Cleland -- call their achievement a milestone in experimental quantum mechanics. The scientists said they used a superconducting electronic circuit known as a Josephson phase qubit, developed in Martinis' lab, to controllably pump six...

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...
