Superconductivity: It’s Hydrogen’s Fault

With new nickelates and the predictive power of supercomputers to the superconductor without any cooling

29-Apr-2020

Nickel is supposed to herald a new age of superconductivity – but this is proving more difficult than expected. Scientists at TU Wien (Vienna) can now explain why. Last summer, a new age for high-temperature superconductivity was proclaimed - the nickel age. It was discovered that there are ...

Intelligent material improves aerodynamics in cars and aircraft

Start-up designs active components and systems based on shape memory alloys

22-Mar-2019

In order to save energy, aerodynamics is important for cars and aircraft. However, technologies controlling saving of energy are only designed for one speed range. Researchers at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern have developed a more flexible method: Thanks to a so-called shape memory wire, ...
