Gruner and Sethna part group that developes the first self-assembled superconductor

Sol Gruner and James Sethna are part of a collaboration that has created the first self-assembled, three-dimensional gyroidal superconductor. The gyroid is a complex cubic structure based on a surface that divides space into two separate volumes that are interpenetrating and contain various spirals. Pores and the superconducting material have structural dimensions of only around 10 nanometers, which could lead to entirely novel property profiles of superconductors.
