MIT physicists have found a brand new way to unleash graphene's superconductive power

 Physicists have found a new way to turn ‘wonder material’ graphene into a ridiculously powerful superconductor, capable of shuttling electricity with zero resistance.

That’s important, because if we could find a way to achieve superconductivity at room temperature, it would lead to vastly more efficient electronic devices, not to mention power lines.

Superconductivity in 12442-type iron pnictides

The quest to find further high-temperature superconductors continues apace.  In a recent Letter in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, Zhi-Cheng Wang and Guang-Han Cao report on the first 12442-type… 538 more words

The Gentleman Laureate (Sir Anthony Leggett)

The Nobel Prize has always vaguely irritated me. The idea that one’s entire research career might somehow be neatly defined by what a bunch of Swedes happen to find noteworthy has long struck me as arbitrary at best and, in my darker moments, a sad commentary on our need for self-affirmation. 1,282 more words
