last modified Feb 25, 2015 02:53 PM

Suchitra Sebastian was invited to speak at the prestigious Falling Walls Conference in Berlin 2014.  This annual one-day scientific conference coincides with the fall of the Berlin Wall and showcases the research work of international scientists from a wide range of fields.

Suchitra’s talk “Breaking the Wall of Energy Loss. How Quantum Materials Hold the Key to a New Generation of Superconductors”, explained how superconductors work and gave examples of practical applications from MRI scanners to transporting renewable energy across 1000’s kilometres.  She described the challenge of finding new superconductors, which can operate without cooling, and how by understanding the quantum effects, discovery of new materials can be more directed.
