Portable superconductivity systems for small motors

Superconductivity, where electrical currents course unhindered through a material, is one of modern physics' most intriguing scientific discoveries. It has many practical uses. Governments, industries, and health care and ...

Room-temp superconductors could be possible

Superconductors are the holy grail of energy efficiency. These mind-boggling materials allow electric current to flow freely without resistance. But that generally only happens at temperatures within a few degrees of absolute ...

New superconducting coil improves MRI performance

A multidisciplinary research team led by University of Houston scientist Jarek Wosik has developed a high-temperature superconducting coil that allows magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners to produce higher resolution ...

How maglev works

What if you could travel from New York to Los Angeles in just under seven hours without boarding a plane? It could be possible on a maglev train.

Physicists explore superconductivity at the two-dimensional limit

Researchers at the University of Valencia show that the superconducting state can be maintained even when the material is reduced from three to two dimensions, making the efficiency gains needed for technologies like frictionless ...
