Novel Magnetic, Superconducting Material Opens New Possibilities in Electronics, Department of Energy and Stanford University Study

Published: Sep 06, 2011

Scientists have reached a crucial milestone that could lead to a new class of materials with useful electronic properties. In research reported in the Sept. 5 issue of Nature Physics, the team sandwiched two nonmagnetic insulators together and discovered a startling result: The layer where the two materials meet has both magnetic and superconducting regions – two properties that normally can’t co-exist.
