They believe that we often make unwise choices although we should know better, and that the brain remembers, even if we don’t. Study leader Thomas D. Albright, from the […]

Electron Crystal Lattice Yields Superconductor Clues

With equipment so sensitive that it can locate clusters of electrons, Cornell University and University of Tokyo physicists are attempting to explain the puzzling behavior in a high-temperature superconductor, perhaps leading to a better understanding of how such superconductors work. The researchers say that under certain conditions, the electrons in the material pretty much ignore […]
