What causes superconductivity? It will take legwork!

With a grant of 5,662,844 DKK from the Danish Council for Independent Research, Brian Møller Andersen, associate professor in condensed matter physics at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, will have the opportunity to try to understand the superconducting properties of iron-based superconductors. Superconductivity is a phenomenon with enormous application potential, but there is still a ways to go before it is explained. As so often before, the legwork will be done by the researchers


  • Needleless vaccine will protect children from dangerous viruses


    Orally administered vaccine can protect millions from hepatitis B. Oral vaccines are both safer and less expensive than injections. Therefore, researchers are continuously pursuing ways to produce an oral vaccine that is sufficiently effective. Now, University of Copenhagen physicists have delivered virologists a "recipe" for improving vaccine drops using methods from the world of nanophysics. »
