Superconductivity in cuprates: maximal to minimal dissipation - a new paradigm?13 August 2021Superconductivity in cuprates: ‘from
maximal to minimal dissipation’ - a new
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
The School of Physics Achieves Green Impact Gold Award13 July 2021The School recently had its audit for the Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS-UK) Green Impact awards for 2021 and we are very pleased to announce that we have achieved a Gold award for HH Wills Physics Lab this year.
Bundling unique European expertise for spaceborne devices24 March 2021Ferdinand-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.
Panel Talk for The Climate Day of Action 20211 March 2021As part of the University of Bristol's activities for the Climate Day of Action on Friday 26th Feb 2021, the School of Physics held a panel discussion on Physics and Climate.
Sustainable Energy Grant to create "smart grid"10 February 2021A 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.
