Cracking the mystery of perfect superconductor efficiency

Phys.Org
The next big leap came in 1957, when John Bardeen, Leon Cooper, and John Robert Schrieffer proposed the first theory of why superconductivity occurs. Their theory, made possible by the support of DOE's predecessor, the Atomic Energy Commission, also ...

Titan shines light on high-temperature superconductor pathway

Phys.Org
In conventional, low-temperature superconductivity (left), so-called Cooper pairing arises from the presence of an electron Fermi sea. In the pseudogap regime of the cuprate superconductors (right), parts of the Fermi sea are "dried out" …more.

Superconductivity Hypothesis Gets Some Experimental Confirmation

Science 2.0
Transition temperatures tend to be close to 0 K or -273 C. At even slightly higher temperatures, the materials tend to lose their superconducting properties; indeed, at room temperature most superconductors are very poor conductors. Superconductors are ...

Virtuoso Experiment Reveals the Quantum Secret to Superconductivity

WIRED
As IBM researchers Georg Bednorz and K. Alexander Müller discovered in 1986 (in work that earned them Nobel Prizes the following year), cuprates superconduct at much higher temperatures than other materials, suggesting that their electrons are paired ...
