On the road to conductors of the future

Superconductivity in hydrogen sulfide

16-Sep-2020

Superconducting wires can transport electricity without loss. This would allow for less power production, reducing both costs and greenhouse gasses. Unfortunately, extensive cooling stands in the way, because existing superconductors only lose their resistance at extremely low temperatures. In ...

Scientists break record for highest-temperature superconductor

Experiment produces new material that can conduct electricity perfectly

24-May-2019

University of Chicago scientists are part of an international research team that has discovered superconductivity--the ability to conduct electricity perfectly--at the highest temperatures ever recorded. Using advanced technology at UChicago-affiliated Argonne National Laboratory, the team ...

Breakthrough could enable cheaper infrared cameras

12-Mar-2019

There's an entire world our eyes miss, hidden in the ranges of light wavelengths that human eyes can't see. But infrared cameras can pick up the secret light emitted as plants photosynthesize, as cool stars burn and batteries get hot. They can see through smoke and fog and plastic. But infrared ...

Less is more when it comes to predicting molecules’ conductivity

04-Jun-2018

The smaller and smarter that phones and devices become, the greater the need to build smaller circuits. Forward-thinking scientists in the 1970s suggested that circuits could be built using molecules instead of wires, and over the past decades that technology has become reality. The trouble is, ...

What happens when electrons get wet?

31-Jan-2018

There's a particular set of chemical reactions that governs many of the processes around us--everything from bridges corroding in water to your breakfast breaking down in your gut. One crucial part of that reaction involves electrons striking water, and despite how commonplace this reaction is, ...

Gyroscopes lead scientists to unusual state of matter in a disorganized structure

17-Jan-2018

You don't have to be perfectly organized to pull off a wave, according to University of Chicago scientists. Using a set of gyroscopes linked together, physicists explored the behavior of a material whose structure is arranged randomly, instead of an orderly lattice. They found they could set off ...

Experiment documents multiscale fluid dynamics

07-Aug-2017

University of Chicago physicists working in the nascent field of experimental vortex dynamics have, with unexpected help from a Sharpie marker, achieved the first measurements of an elusive but fundamental property of fluid flow. Until now, there had been no way in the laboratory to measure the ...

New method promises easier nanoscale manufacturing

31-Jul-2017

Scientists at the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory have discovered a new way to precisely pattern nanomaterials that could open a new path to the next generation of everyday electronic devices. The new research is expected to make such materials easily available for eventual ...

Turning up the heat for perfect (nano)diamonds

15-Feb-2017

Quantum mechanics, the physics that governs nature at the atomic and subatomic scale, contains a host of new physical phenomena to explore quantum states at the nanoscale. Though tricky, there are ways to exploit these inherently fragile and sensitive systems for quantum sensing. One nascent ...

Method improves accuracy of imaging systems

09-Feb-2017

New research provides scientists looking at single molecules or into deep space a more accurate way to analyze imaging data captured by microscopes, telescopes and other devices. The improved method for determining the position of objects captured by imaging systems is the result of new research ...
