Electronic transport is anomalous in strongly correlated systems such as high-temperature cuprate superconductors, iron-based superconductors, and various heavy electron materials, says Singh, and though there is no dearth of refined experiments to detect and measure these anomalies, traditional theories are not adequate to explain them and new theories have not been developed.
Their results, published today in the journal Science, present the most direct experimental evidence to date of electronic nematicity as a universal feature in cuprate high-temperature superconductors.
Ultrafast laser techniques have helped MIT physics graduate Fahad Mahmood and fellows establish that electrons form charge-density waves in the thin-film superconductive material LSCO cuprate.
The US patent titled 'Enhancing Critical Current Density of Cuprate Superconductors' reveals a method for improving the critical current density in superconductors by restricting the movement of Abrikosov (A) vortices, Josephson (J) vortices, or Abrikosov-Josephson (A-J) vortices using the half integer vortices associated with the d-wave symmetry present in the grain boundary.
But until now, the highest-temperature superconducting material was a cuprate that had to be cooled to 164 kelvins.
The cuprate, YBa2Cu3O6+x, is one of the few materials known to be superconductive at higher temperatures, but scientists are so far unable to achieve superconductivity in this material above -179 degree Celsius.
Over those twenty years, however, the technology had advanced to the point that the brittle ceramic cuprate compound could be deposited as a thin film on a nickel alloy substrate, providing a potential application medium.
Examination under high magnification of the thin films that cover the crystal substratum revealed that the cuprate coating consists of spiral ladders with a screw displacement; this structure produced twisting in the lines of the magnetic field and facilitated high-temperature superconductivity (Garwin, 1991).
This immense interest in the physics and chemistry communities is reminiscent of the excitement that accompanied the discovery of high - Tc cuprate superconductors in the early 1980s.
The nature of cuprate oxide superconductors can be elegantly probe by the substitution of Y atom by others Lanthanides entities, [[Y.
The topics include transport properties of high-temperature cuprate thin films as superconductive materials, the liquid-phase epitaxy growth of high-temperature superconducting films, high-temperature Josephson junctions, and microwave filters using high-temperature superconductors.
