Closing in on phenomenon of superconductivity with two-dimensional atomic gas

9 junio 2015

Using an exotic quantum superfluid that originates in a two-dimensional atomic gas, researchers are closing in on the phenomenon of superconductivity. The team is using this special gas as a model system to more easily study the largely unknown mechanism of the superfluid phase transition in 2D structures. The researchers hope to gain new insight into the so-called room-temperature superconductor, a hypothetical material that does not require cooling to achieve lossless conduction of electricity.
