Superconductivity

Scientists detected trace amounts of superconducting material in Meteorite

Meteorites can contain a wide range of material phases due to the extreme environments found in space. They are ideal candidates to...

The study explains why superconductivity takes place in graphene

On its own, a sheet of graphene is a semimetal—its electrons interact only weakly with each other. But as experimentalists discovered in...

Controlling superconducting regions within an exotic metal

A metallic microdevice in which they can define and tune patterns of superconductivity.

Scientists finally found superconductivity in place they’ve been looking for decades

The Hubbard model used to understand electron behavior in numerous quantum materials, now shows us its stripes, and superconductivity too, in simulations for cuprate superconductors.

Light pulses provide a new route to enhance superconductivity

Mott insulators are a class of materials that should conduct electricity under conventional band theories but are insulators when measured (particularly at low temperatures)....

New competing state of matter discovered in superconducting material

A team of Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory and theoreticians at the University of Alabama Birmingham have recently found a strikingly...

Physicists created a superconducting material that works at near-room temperature

Physicists recently claimed to have developed a superconducting material that can operate at near-room temperature. Russell Hemley, a geophysicist at George Washington University in...

Scientists discovered new properties of uranium compounds including superconductivity

A team of scientists at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) recently have confirmed the existence of strange new uranium compounds, and they...

Superconductivity where you don’t expect it

The special properties of 'topological materials' typically occur at their surface. These materials, for instance, insulators that do lead current at their surface, are...

Scientist claimed to obtain superconductivity at ambient temperature

A material is said to show superconductivity when it can convey electric current with essentially zero obstruction. So not at all like the ordinarily...
