  • Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

    What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that have a "super" ability to conduct electricity when chilled by liquid nitrogen? A team of scientists set out to answer this question in one suc more

  • Scale-invariant resistivity in cuprates

    A new intriguing property of cuprate superconductors has been identified, says a new study, which shows that in very high magnetic fields, the resistivity of a thin-film lanthanum-based cuprate scales linearly with the field. The findings present a challenge for the theories concerning the normal st more

  • Why nanomaterial loses superconductivity

    The struggle to keep drinks cold during the summer is a lesson in classical phase transitions. To study phase transitions, apply heat to a substance and watch how its properties change. Add heat to water and at the so-called "critical point," watch as it transforms into a gas (steam). Remove heat fr more

Levitating Superconductor on a Möbius strip

Andy takes a closer look at one of his favourite demos from the 2012 Christmas Lectures, bringing together a levitating superconductor and a bewildering Möbius strip made from over 2,000 magnets. more

  • Weighing without touching in a contamination-free working environment

    Like counting objects, measuring their mass belongs to the most elemental characterization processes mankind has performed for thousands of years, from coal bags to sophisticated agents used in the pharma industry, from beam balances to electromagnetic laboratory balances, and from micro to kilo amounts. more
