Moments of silence point the way towards better superconductors

Together with researchers from Lund University and VTT, the team at Aalto set up an experiment to detect smalls number of quasiparticles in real-time.
Press releases
Published:
The apparatus consisted of a micron-scale aluminium superconductor separated from a normal conductor – metallic copper – by a thin insulating layer. When Cooper pairs in the superconductor broke, the quasiparticles would tunnel through the insulation to the copper, where the researchers observed them with a charge detector.
