New strategy makes high-temperature superconductors possible — Harvard Gazette

Such a device could theoretically fuel fledging industries like quantum computing, which rely on fleeting mechanical phenomena that are difficult to sustain. “High-temperature superconducting diodes are, in fact, possible, without application of magnetic fields, and opens new doors of inquiry toward exotic materials study,” Kim said. But handling these materials without destroying their superconducting phases is extremely complex due to their intricate electronic and structural features. Reconciling the experimental observations also required new theory developments, performed by University of Connecticut’s Pavel A. Volkov. The research was supported, in part, by the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Energy.
