Closing in on high-temperature superconductivity
University Park PA (SPX) Sep 28, 2016
The quest to know the mysterious recipe for high-temperature superconductivity, which could enable revolutionary advances in technologies that make or use electricity, just took a big leap forward thanks to new research by an international team of experimental and theoretical physicists. The research paper appears in the journal Science on Sept. 16, 2016. The research is focused on revealing the mysterious ingredients required for high-temperature superconductivity - the ability of a material's el ... read more

Scientists find exception to the laws of thermodynamics
To effectively control and study ions, scientists must cool the high-energy particles. To do so, they rely on a basic premise of the laws of thermodynamics - that an object with a higher temperature will eventual cool to the same temperature as its surroundings. An apple pie, for example, will eventually cool to room temperature. ... more
