J.C. Seamus DavisJuly, 2015: Trapping vortices key to high-current superconductors. KIC member Seamus Davis and researchers from Cornell, Brookhaven and Argonne national laboratories have found that irradiation can create nanometer-sized defects that trap swirling eddies in the flow of electrons, keeping them out of the way so more current can flow. They reported their discovery in the May 22 issue of the journal Science Advances. Read more in the Cornell Chronicle.
