Enhancing the superconducting properties of an iron-based material

(DOE/Brookhaven National Laboratory) By bombarding the material with low-energy protons, scientists doubled the amount of current the material could carry without resistance, while raising the temperature at which this superconducting state emerges. Their method could be used to improve the performance of superconducting wires and tapes for electric vehicles, wind turbines, medical imaging devices, and other applications.
