Latest Superconductivity Stories
Atomtronics is an emerging technology whereby physicists use ensembles of atoms to build analogs to electronic circuit elements.
Nearly 30 years after the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity, many questions remain, but an Oak Ridge National Laboratory team is providing insight that could lead to better superconductors.
UBC researchers have discovered a universal electronic state that controls the behavior of high-temperature superconducting copper-oxide ceramics.
Weizmann Institute scientists have taken a quantum leap toward understanding the phenomenon known as superconductivity: They have created the world’s smallest SQUID – a device used to measure magnetic fields – which has broken the world record for sensitivity and resolution.
Classical and high-temperature superconductors differ hugely in the value of the critical temperatures at which they lose all electrical resistance.
Advances in technology for computation and information storage always require to make the systems smaller and faster.
Understanding superconductivity – whereby certain materials can conduct electricity without any loss of energy – has proved to be one of the most persistent problems in modern physics.
Quite by accident, Washington State University researchers have achieved a 400-fold increase in the electrical conductivity of a crystal simply by exposing it to light.
Scientists introduce a general theoretical approach that describes all known forms of high-temperature superconductivity and their "intertwined" phases
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...
