Scientists aim to make superconductors that work at room temperature

The new research reveals, for the first time, a strong correlation between strontium and electron coupling.

Many superconductors are made up of bonds between copper and oxygen atoms. 385 more words

Quantum sensors for high-precision magnetometry of superconductors

Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and the Department of Physics at the University of Basel have developed a new method that has enabled them to image magnetic fields on the nanometer scale at temperatures close to absolute zero for the first time. 377 more words


Mastering superconductors and high field trapped field magnets

EEtimes has more details about improved superconductor theories

“The ‘critical state model’ has had continued success since circa 1963. One of its rock-solid predictions is that in order to magnetize a piece of bulk superconducting material to its maximum obtainable field, one must apply a field exceeding 2X that maximum,” professor Roy Weinstein told EE Times.
