New insights into high-temperature superconductors

Prof. Dr. Kim Lefman, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen

After 30 years of research, there are still many unsolved puzzles about high-temperature superconductors - among them is the magnetic “stripe order” found in some cuprate superconductors. A Danish research team has taken a closer look at these stripes, using high-resolution neutron scattering at the spectrometers FLEXX (HZB) and ThALES (ILL, Grenoble). Their results, now published in Physical Review Letters, challenge the common understanding of stripe order, and may contribute to unveil the true nature of high-temperature superconductivity.

LENS: The League of advanced European Neutron Sources

The forthcoming establishment of a new strategic consortium of European neutron sources was announced on 22 June 2018 in Brussels. The League of advanced European Neutron Sources, or LENS, will bring together the trans-national European neutron source facilities with the aim to, according to the group’s charter, “facilitate any form of discussion and decision-making process that has the potential to strengthen European neutron science via enhanced collaboration among the facilities”.
