Scientists Capture Ultrafast Snapshots of Light-Driven Superconductivity
Upton NY (SPX) Apr 17, 2014
A new study pins down a major factor behind the appearance of superconductivity-the ability to conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency-in a promising copper-oxide material. Scientists used carefully timed pairs of laser pulses at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory's Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) to trigger superconductivity in the material and immediately take x-ray snapshots of its atomic and electronic structure as superconductivity emerged. They discovered that so-called "c ... read more
