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.

Superconductor Powered Toyota Shows Increased Power

Sumitomo has shown a prototype of a car (a Toyota - shown in picture) that uses special type of engine, a liquid-nitrogen cooled one. The use of liquid nitrogen makes usual copper conductors have superconducting properties.

New Iron-based Superconductors Have Green Gains

Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has discovered a new type of iron-based superconductor that shares the same magnetic properties with the older copper-oxide superconductors. The amazing fact is that the new superconductors have all those magnetic properties at higher temperatures.

How to Make a Superconductor at Home

Superconductors are known as the holy grail of energy transmission, energy storage and even computing. You can make one yourself if you possess a...

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.
