Hot Damn An international team of scientists has built a superconductor that functions at 250 Kelvin, or -23 degrees Celsius — or just-9 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s a few degrees colder than the...
Holy Grail The U.S. military may be honing in on one of the most sought-after discoveries in physics. On Thursday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office made public a Navy scientist’s patent...
Graphene seems to have endlessly remarkable abilities. In two new papers, researchers found that by sandwiching two layers of graphene and twisting them, the material becomes a superconductor.
While researching superconductive materials, scientists from the Los Alamos National Laboratory found evidence of a new state of matter. The discovery could give us more insight into these...
Scientists have discovered a low-cost, efficient catalyst for splitting water to create hydrogen. This means that the world’s cleanest form of energy, hydrogen, may be more easily and cheaply...
Eurotapes has made a superconducting tape composed of carbon oxide. This threadlike material can conduct 100 times more electricity than copper. Eurotapes said its new superconducting tapes could...
Superconductive materials are used to make technology like MRI machines, particle accelerators, and levitating trains. Graphene is known as being one of the strongest materials on Earth, and its...
New research has shown that at low temperatures bismuth behaves as a superconductor. The discovery could pave the way for cheaper and more widely available superconductor-based technology, such as...
Researchers have transmitted a super-current with a net spin and an impressive strength a record-breaking distance of 600 nanometers in cryogenic conditions. If we can figure out how to pass a...
In a new series of experiments, researchers recorded the time it took an electron to leave a helium atom with an accuracy rate of up to 850 zeptoseconds. This ultra-precise measurement furthers our...
