Electron Conflict Leads to "Bad Traffic" on Way to Superconductivity


April 4, 2013

Qimiao Si (left) and Rong Yu Rice University physicists on the hunt for the origins of high-temperature superconductivity have published new findings about a seemingly contradictory state in which a material simultaneously exhibits the conflicting characteristics of both a metallic conductor and an insulator. In a theoretical analysis published  in Physical Review Letters, Physicists Qimiao Si and Rong Yu offer an explanation for observations by researchers at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2016, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards. NSF also awards about $626 million in professional and service contracts yearly.
