High-Temperature Superconductors

High-Temperature Superconductors

Superconductivity is a fascinating state of matter in which electric current flows without dissipation of energy. For thirty years, the search for high-temperature superconductors focused on cuprates, however, the origin of the pairing mechanism is not yet clear because of the high structural and electronic complexity of these materials. To study the properties of high Tc superconductors, the sample quality is a crucial element. One of the strengths of the group is to be able to implement various advanced techniques to synthesize ceramics or single crystals cuprates, including mercury cuprates of the highest Tc of (135K, or -138 ° C) at ambient pressure but also new iron pnictides. These pure or substituted compounds, including cuprates are actively elaborated and studied to capture the main features of the electron pairing mechanism.

 

On these issues, the group has developed national and international collaborations in particular with: LPS-Orsay; Soleil; MPQ-Paris7; ESPCI-Paris; LSI-Palaiseau; ESRF-Grenoble; Institut Néel-Grenoble; Université de Sherbrooke (Canada); IFW Dresden (Allemagne); Université de Victoria (Nouvelle Zélande)
