University of Hamburg scientists have pointed out how to create a time crystal in an intriguing class of materials, the high-temperature superconductors. They propose to drive these superconducting materials into a time crystalline state by inducing Higgs excitations via light. When you cool down liquid water, it crystallizes into ice. Consider a bucket filled with […]

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, […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Plasma Science & Fusion Center and Commonwealth Fusion Systems, will present their work at the American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics meeting in Portland, Oregon. The scientists are working to dramatically speed up the development of fusion energy with a breakthrough technology – high-temperature superconductors, which can be used to […]
