Scientists have long pursued the goal of superconductivity at room temperature. This work opens a route towards one day stabilizing superconductivity at room temperature, which could open tremendous technological opportunities.
Scientists found that the emergence of an exotic quantum mechanical phase in Ce1-xNdxCoIn5 is due to a shape change in the Fermi surface. This finding ran counter to theoretical arguments and has led investigators in new directions.
With funding from the National Science Foundation, scientists and engineers will determine the best way to build a new class of record-breaking instruments.
A material already known for its unique behavior is found to carry current in a way never before observed.
This work provides important insight into one of the parent materials of iron-based superconductors.
This finding sheds light on the role of quasiparticle mass enhancement near a quantum critical point in one of the leading families of high-temperature superconductors.
A lot of the research conducted in powerful magnets ends up having a powerful effect on our day-to-day lives.
Looking for ways to make better superconductors for the next-generation particle accelerators, a young scientist homed in on how they were heat-treated. He was getting warmer.
The finding in fullerides opens a new way of exploring the role electron interactions play in high-temperature superconductivity
At the National MagLab and other labs across the globe, the race to discover ever-warmer superconductors is heating up. Find out what these materials are, what they’re good for and why this field is red hot.
