Research carried out at MIT's Alcator C-Mod fusion reactor may have brought the promise of fusion as a future power source a bit closer to reality, though scientists caution that a practical fusion powerplant is still decades away.

(2)Disappearing superconductivity reappears -- in 2-D

Scientists studying a material that appeared to lose its ability to carry current with no resistance say new measurements reveal that the material is indeed a superconductor -- but only in two dimensions. Equally surprising, this new form of 2-D superconductivity emerges at a higher temperature than ordinary 3-D superconductivity in other compositions of the same material.

"As a result of the transfer of the Industrial Materials Group in the School of Crystallography, Birkbeck College, London (BBK) to the Department of Chemistry, University College, London (UCL), it has been decided to make the contents of this course openly available given the different emphasis in teaching methods at UCL. Consequently, the course material is now hosted on"[1].
