A University of Tsukuba researcher has introduced a new theory for superconductivity that can better explain the results of recent experiments with high-temperature superconductors. By focusing on the ‘Berry connection,’ this work may lead to energy distribution with much less electrical resistance. The scientist works at the Division of Quantum Condensed Matter Physics at the […]

Harvard scientists reported superconductivity progress that’s more robust and operates at higher temperatures. The scientists successfully stacked three sheets of graphene and then twisted each of them at a specific angle to produce a three-layered structure more capable, robust and with a higher operating temperature than many of the double-stacked graphene designs. In 2018, the […]

The possibility of achieving room temperature superconductivity took a tiny step forward with a recent discovery by a team of Penn State physicists and materials scientists. The surprising discovery involved layering a two-dimensional material called molybdenum sulfide with another material called molybdenum carbide. Molybdenum carbide is a known superconductor – electrons can flow through the […]

Ohio State University researchers, in collaboration with scientists around the world, have made a discovery that could provide new insights into how superconductors might move energy more efficiently to power homes, industries and vehicles. Their work showed that graphene – a material composed of a single layer of carbon atoms – is more likely to […]
