Its another clue to how unconventional superconductors carry electric current with no loss. SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory scientists embedded elementary particles called muons into a many-layered nickel oxide superconductor to learn more about its magnetic properties. They discovered […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory researchers discovered that nickel oxide superconductors contain a phase of quantum matter, known as charge density waves, that’s common in other unconventional superconductors. The new study shows that nickel oxide superconductors, which conduct electricity with no loss at higher temperatures than conventional superconductors do, contain a type of quantum matter […]

Working with experimentalist Julia Mundy at Harvard University, she discovered a new superconducting material – a quintuple-layer nickelate. They reported their findings in Nature Materials in September 2021. The discovery lets researchers explore similarities and differences […]

Vienna University of Technology’s new experimental results may change the way we think about making high-temperature superconductors. The results suggest a new way to the ‘holy grail of solid state physics’ – the high-temperature superconductor which works at room temperature. Every standard cable, every wire, every electronic device has some electric resistance. There are, however, […]

Argonne National Laboratory researchers have identified a nickel oxide compound as an unconventional but promising candidate material for high-temperature superconductivity. The project combined crystal growth, X-ray spectroscopy and computational theory. The team successfully synthesized single crystals of a metallic trilayer nickelate compound, a feat the researchers believe to be a first. John Mitchell, an Argonne […]
