W.J. Carr Lecture

Description:
Title: High Temperature Superconductivity: Taming Serendipity Speaker: Laura Greene, University of Illinois Abstract: At we pass the centenary of the discovery of superconductivity, the design of new and more useful superconductors remains as enigmatic as ever. As high-density current carriers with little or no power loss, high-temperature superconductors offer unique solutions to fundamental grid challenges of the 21st promise in addressing our global energy challenge in energy production, storage, and distribution. Traditionally guided by serendipity, researchers in the field have grown into an enthusiastic global network to predictively design new superconductors. I will share our general guidelines and strive to convey the renewed passion we share in this international pursuit. I will also show how our point contact spectroscopy measurements would aid in identifying promising candidates. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 12, 2014
