  • On the road to conductors of the future

    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 the j more

  • Attention, the electron is too fast!

    It is very hard to take a photo of a hummingbird flapping its wings 50 times per second. The exposure time has to be much shorter than the characteristic time scale of the wing beat, otherwise you will only see a colorful blur. A very similar problem is encountered in solid-state physics, where the more

  • A topography of extremes

    An international team of scientists from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, and colleagues from the USA and Switzerland have successfully combined various extreme experimental conditions in a completely unique way, revealing exci 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
