The culprit of superconductivity in cuprates

When it comes to high-temperature superconductors, "high" is a relative term. In the field of superconductivity, "high temperature" means anything that can still be superconductive over 30 degrees Kelvin (K), or a balmy -405 ...

Superconducting vortices quantize ordinary metal

Russian researchers, together with their French colleagues, have discovered that a genuine feature of superconductors—quantum Abrikosov vortices of supercurrent—can also exist in an ordinary non-superconducting metal ...

Strained materials make cooler superconductors

University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have added a new dimension to our understanding of why straining a particular group of materials, called Ruddlesden-Popper oxides, tampers with their superconducting properties.

Some superconductors can also carry currents of 'spin'

Researchers have shown that certain superconductors—materials that carry electrical current with zero resistance at very low temperatures—can also carry currents of 'spin'. The successful combination of superconductivity ...

Superconductivity in an alloy with quasicrystal structure

Extraordinary things happen at low temperatures. One of the best examples is superconductivity, a phenomenon wherein the electrical resistance of a solid drops to zero below a critical temperature. Known for a century, superconductivity ...
