Leiden physicists discover inhomogeneous texture of high-temperature superconductors
High-temperature superconductivity fascinates because of the deep mystery it represents for physicists, and because of the promise of applications in wind turbines, levitating trains and “no-resistance” power grids. Milan Allan’s research group used a special Scanning Tunneling Microscope to image spatial variations of superconducting particles for the first time in these materials, and published about it in Nature.
