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 […]

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 […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Linköping University researchers have, by way of a number of theoretical calculations, shown that magnesium diboride becomes superconductive at a higher temperature when it is stretched. The discovery is a big step toward finding superconductive materials that are useful in real-world situations. Erik Johansson, who recently completed his doctorate at the Division of Theoretical […]

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 […]

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, […]
