  • Strain enables new applications of 2D materials

    Superconductors' never-ending flow of electrical current could provide new options for energy storage and superefficient electrical transmission and generation, to name just a few benefits. But the signature zero electrical resistance of superconductors is reached only below a certain critical tempe more

  • Computing faster with quasi-particles

    In collaboration with researchers from Harvard University, researchers from the University of Würzburg have made an important step on the road to topological quantum computers. Majorana particles are very peculiar members of the family of elementary particles. First predicted in 1937 by the Italian more

  • Physicists uncover new competing state of matter in superconducting material

    A team of experimentalists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory and theoreticians at University of Alabama Birmingham discovered a remarkably long-lived new state of matter in an iron pnictide superconductor, which reveals a laser-induced formation of collective behaviors that compete 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
