Vienna University of Technology with collaboration from Japan show there is a ‘Goldilocks zone’ of superconductivity where palladium-based materials (‘palladates’) could be the solution. A new age of superconductors may be about […]

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 […]

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 […]
