  • Brookhaven Lab scientists Myung-Geun Han (sitting front), Ivan Bozovic (sitting back), Yimei Zhu (standing back), and Anthony Bollinger of the Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science Division built electronic transport devices that sandwich a thin layer of an insulating material in between two thicker layers of superconducting materials. They characterized these devices using an electron microscope (seen in background). In collaboration with scientists at Rice University and the University of Connecticut, the team discovered that a high percentage of electron pairs—which are known to carry superconducting current—exists well above expected temperature and energy ranges in a material that conducts electricity without energy loss at unusually high temperatures.
