Latest Superconductivity Stories
Physicists have long wondered whether hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe, could be transformed into a metal and possibly even a superconductorâ€”the elusive state in which electrons can flow without resistance.
For the first time, physicists have convincingly demonstrated that physically separated particles in solid-state devices can be quantum-mechanically entangled.
First direct evidence of quantum critical point in iron-based 'pnictides'.
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SPX Corporation (NYSE: SPW) today announced that its Waukesha Electric Systems, Inc. business unit was awarded a $10.7 million grant by the U.S.
Vitaly Ginzburg, one of the creators of the Soviet hydrogen bomb and later a Nobel Prize-winning Russian physicist, died in Moscow on Sunday at the age of 93.
Findings may lead to precision engineering of superconducting thin films for electronic devices.
In finally answering an elusive scientific question, researchers with the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have shown that the selective placement of strain can alter the electronic phase and its spatial arrangement in correlated electron materials.
The US Department of Energy's (DOE's) Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility marked a step forward in the field of advanced particle accelerator technology with the successful test of the first US-built superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) niobium cavity to meet the exacting specifications of the proposed International Linear Collider (ILC).
Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory have now successfully used magnetic fields to levitate mice.
Canadian scientists are challenging physics' single-band Hubbard theory that's used to predict and calculate behavior of high-temperature superconductors. University of British Columbia researchers said their findings mark the first compelling evidence challenging the Hubbard model under certain conditions, and could necessitate entirely new theoretical approaches to explaining superconductivity in certain materials. Single-band Hubbard physics has been used for 20 years to predict how...
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...
