Significance for science
Superconductivity is a quantum-mechanical phenomenon, which was discovered more than hundred years ago. Today, superconductivity is still an extremely active field of research, which includes solving the pairing mechanism for Cooper pairs in high-temperature superconductors, designing new superconductors, and finding new applications. The results of our research project thus contribute to general understanding of high-temperature superconductors, which behave unconventional with respect to the standard BCS theory of superconductivity. Investigation of novel iron-based superconductors in combination with data gathered on other families of superconductors, including the cuprates and fullerides, may help solve the mysterious mechanism for high-temperature superconductivity.
Significance for the country
If it turns out that iron-based superconductors are easy to handle and manufacture, and their superconducting transition is pushed to even higher temperatures, this could mean a technological revolution. Potentially attractive applications such as lossless transfer of electricity over the electric grid, cheap superconducting magnets or superconducting trains for daily transportation, could vital not only for Slovenia, but for the whole mankind.
