Superconductor Resistivity Reduced by New Discovery

An international team of researchers from Russia, Spain, Belgium, the U.K. and the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has discovered groundbreaking...

Atom Cooling Leads to Greater Understanding of Superconductors

The processes that occur when atoms cool have long eluded scientists. However, a team of researchers at The Open University believe they have developed...

SuperStation: The Superconductor Energy Hub Uniting U.S. Grids

New Mexico may become a hub for this kind of energetic interaction, as Clovis is wanted to host the SuperStation, a hub using superconducting cables to link three networks: The Eastern Interconnection, The Western Interconnection and the Texas Interconnection. The 5GW carrying cables will be cooled down to -300°F and thus energy losses through heat will be infinitesimally close to zero.

Molecular-Level Superconducting Material Discovered by Ohio Scientists

A sheet less than a nanometer wide and four pairs of molecules now constitutes the world's smallest superconductor and proves that superconducting nanoscale materials can be made, an obvious advance for nano-scaled electronics and energy applications.

Low Pressure Superconducting Hydrogen Compound Discovered

We have always thought of hydrogen as a fuel. Yet, there are many possibilities for this interesting element. Normally found in gaseous state, hydrogen is the most common in the universe. Recently, scientists from Carnegie Institution in Washington D.C., have found a way to compress hydrogen in such a manner that it becomes not only solid, but turns into a metallic superconducting state.

What Is a SuperConductor?

Superconductors are the next viable step in energy savings worldwide. They are being used to carry energy in Sweden, USA, Japan, and the list extends pretty fast to other countries.

New Discovery Sheds Light on Way to High Temperature Superconductivity

High temperature superconductors are today what some other time the philosopher's stone used to be. Research done by Gennady Logvenov and his colleagues from the Brookehaven National Laboratory in Upton, NY sheds a new light on how scientists could engineer materials to obtain their desiderate: room temperature superconductors.

Swiss High-Temperature Superconductor Discovery Could Change The Grid Forever

A team of researchers from EPFL's Laboratory for Quantum Magnetism could change the way people transmit electricity and the efficiency of the process. Their...

New Iron-Based Material Could Be The Best High Temperature Superconductor

Following the dream of realizing a high-temperature superconductor, Cornell University researchers just found something about iron-based materials: they can be made to resemble electronic liquid crystals.

Team Discovers what Once was Thought Impossible about Superconductors

A team of researchers from the University of British Columbia, coordinated by Physics Assoc. Prof. Andrea Damascelli, has managed to develop a technique that controls the number of electrons from the surface of a high temperature superconductor. This procedure has been considered impossible for the last 20 years.
