Fabricating inexpensive, high-temp SQUIDs: Discovery paves way for new kinds of superconducting electronics
Physicists at UC San Diego have developed a new way to control the transport of electrical currents through high-temperature superconductors—materials discovered nearly 30 years ago that lose all resistance ...
Linking superconductivity and structure
Superconductivity is a rare physical state in which matter is able to conduct electricity—maintain a flow of electrons—without any resistance. It can only be found in certain materials, and even then ...
Visualizing how radiation bombardment boosts superconductivity
Sometimes a little damage can do a lot of good—at least in the case of iron-based high-temperature superconductors. Bombarding these materials with high-energy heavy ions introduces nanometer-scale damage ...
