Study proposes new way to measure superconducting fluctuationsMarch 10, 2015

A study published last month by researchers at Argonne provides theoretical evidence for a new effect that may lead to a way of measuring the exact temperature at which superconductivity kicks in and shed light on the poorly understood properties of superconducting materials above this temperature.

Argonne research expanding from injectors to inhalersMarch 4, 2015

In collaboration with Australian researchers, Argonne’s scientists are using decades of experience analyzing vehicle fuel injectors to study medical inhalers, hoping to unlock the secrets of the devices that are so well known to asthma sufferers everywhere.
