Emanuel Gull, associate professor of physics, and Xinyang Dong, doctoral graduate, discuss the complexity of how superconductivity works. Superconductivity occurs when materials are cooled to a specific temperature and lose electric resistance. Gull and Dong note the 1966 theory and describe their dynamical cluster method that uses supercomputers and copper-oxide-based superconductors, allowing researchers to analyze the interactions between the electrons and their spin. They further highlight their research and the impact of their findings.
