Superconductivity Experiments Confirm an Important Mechanism for Increasing the Maximum Critical Temperature in Cuprates

Some cuprate superconductors exhibit high critical temperatures at atmospheric pressure. High-pressure nuclear magnetic resonance experiments on the cuprate YBCO have now provided crucial insights into the underlying process.

Deployment of Green Hydrogen: Opening a Probabilistic Feasibility Space to Inform Policy Choices

Green hydrogen can replace fossil fuels where direct electrification is unfeasible. Based on probabilistic methods and using growth rates of technology analogs, a recent study models a feasibility space for green hydrogen, assessing the likelihood that it will play a major role before 2050.

Multiple Sclerosis Associated with a Broad Repertoire of T Cell Receptors That Are Specific to Epstein-Barr Virus

Is infection with the Epstein-Barr virus the long-debated cause of multiple sclerosis? A new study found more TCRβ sequences specific to the virus in patients than in healthy individuals. These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that MS is associated with an ongoing immune response to the Epstein-Barr virus.
