Researchers create first self-assembled superconductor

Building on nearly two decades' worth of research, a multidisciplinary team at Cornell has blazed a new trail by creating a self-assembled, three-dimensional gyroidal superconductor.

Test magnet reaches 13.5 tesla – a new CERN record

The Short Model Coil (SMC) programme tests new magnet technologies with magnets about 30 centimetres long. The technology developed in the SMC will eventually help engineers build more powerful magnets for the Large Hadron ...

Earth's rarest metals ranked in supply risk list

(PhysOrg.com) -- A new list published by the British Geological Survey, or BGS, ranks 52 of Earth's elements based on their risk of supply disruption. Andrew Bloodworth, from BGS, points out that the likelihood of the world ...

Researching niobium gilding in bid for better beams

For thousands of years, craftsmen have applied gilding, a thin layer of gold, to objects to enhance their value. Now, researchers at DOE's Jefferson Lab are using this same idea to enhance materials for accelerator science.

Replacing Platinum in Fuel Cell Technology

(PhysOrg.com) -- One of the biggest hindrances to the development of fuel cell technology is its cost. In order to work properly, polymer electrolyte fuel cells require a catalyst. So far, though, the most efficient catalyst ...
