Precision engineering breakthrough discovers superconductor...
The use of precision engineering techniques for making superconducting thin films layer-by-layer has identified a single layer responsible for material's ability to become a superconductor.
According to the US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory in a write-up reported for technology journal Science, precision engineering abilities which combine copper oxide and zinc at certain temperatures could engineer ultrathin films with "tunable" superconductivity to make high-efficiency electronics.
Brookhaven physicist and the group leader Ivan Bozovic said: "We now have a clean experimental proof that high-temperature superconductivity can exist, undiminished, in a single copper-oxide layer.
"This piece of information gives important input to our theoretical understanding of this phenomenon."
The expert added that such a breakthrough could allow further developments in the world of less power-hungry electronic items, making consumer goods cheaper to run and more accessible as a result.
Superconductors are regularly produced from metal alloys or ceramics, though mercury is known to work on its own without combination with anything else.
