Latest Superconductivity Stories
University of Nottingham scientists have been levitating fruit flies with magnets to determine how biological organisms are affected by weightless conditions in space.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new computational approach to improve the utility of superconductive materials for specific design applications – and have used the approach to solve a key research obstacle for the next-generation superconductor material yttrium barium copper oxide (YBCO).
It's a basic technique learned early, maybe even before kindergarten: Pulling things apart - from toy cars to complicated electronic materials - can reveal a lot about how they work.
'Electron superhighway' could pave way for creation of elusive quantum-particle pairs.
A Nobel Prize winning physicist has resigned from the American Physical Society, protesting the organization's official stance on climate change.
A team of researchers claim to have designed what is being called an antimagnetic cloak.
Spanish researchers have designed what they believe to be a new type of magnetic cloak, which shields objects from external magnetic fields, while at the same time preventing any magnetic internal fields from leaking outside, making the cloak undetectable.
Tel Aviv University researchers marry old and new to create the next generation of superconductors.
FARMINGTON, Conn., Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Information, Inc.
Although high-temperature superconductors are widely used in technologies such as MRI machines, explaining the unusual properties of these materials remains an unsolved problem for theoretical physicists.
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...
