Sustainable Energy Grant to create "smart grid" 10 February 2021 A U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) award is empowering the Centre for Device Thermography and Reliability (CDTR) at the University of Bristol to create a resilient and sustainable electricity grid with the use of next-generation ultra-wide bandgap materials and devices.
- Superconductivity in cuprates: maximal to minimal dissipation - a new paradigm? 13 August 2021 Superconductivity in cuprates: ‘from maximal to minimal dissipation’ - a new paradigm? Researchers from the School of Physics used some of Europe’s strongest continuous magnetic fields to uncover evidence of exotic charge carriers in the metallic state of copper-oxide high-temperature superconductors (high-Tc cuprates). Their results have been published last week in Nature . In a related publication in SciPost Physics the week before , members from the same team postulated that it is these exotic charge carriers that form the superconducting pairs, in marked contrast with expectations from conventional theory.

- Bundling unique European expertise for spaceborne devices 24 March 2021 Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, SweGaN AB, and the University of Bristol are partnering in the European Space Agency funded Kassiopeia project. The teams join forces to develop high-performance Ka-band GaN MMICs (monolithic microwave integrated circuits). Applications for these devices include beam steering antennas for satellite communications and radar applications.
