A new technique developed by researchers at Aalto University and Oak Ridge National Laboratories in the US can detect Cooper pairs occurrence with atomic precision. Superconductivity is caused by specially linked pairs of electrons known as Cooper pairs. Superconductors are materials with no electrical resistance whatsoever, commonly requiring extremely low temperatures. They are used in […]

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 […]
