Better solar cells, superconductors and hard-drives

By Bénédicte Huchet. Published on 28 April 2014 in:
April 2014, News, , ,

Using DESY’s light sources, scientists have opened a new door to better solar cells, novel superconductors and smaller hard-drives.
The research reported in the scientific journal Nature Communications enhances the understanding of the interface of two materials, where completely new properties can arise. With their work, the team of Prof. Andrivo Rusydi, from the National University of Singapore, and Prof. Michael Rübhausen, from the Hamburg Centre for Free-Electron Laser Science, have solved a long standing mystery in the condensed matter physics…
