Superconductors show zero resistance to electric current, and expel magnetic flux (the Meissner effect) below the transition temperature (Tc). In conventional superconductors, the 'Cooper pairs' of electrons that are responsible for superconductivity form only below Tc. In the unconventional high-Tc superconductors, however, a strong electron correlation is(More)
To generate drought-tolerant sugarcane, we obtained hybrid lines by the intergeneric hybridization of a Saccharum spp. hybrid with Erianthus arundinaceus. A test using 5S rDNA as a marker identified five intergeneric hybrid lines with a production efficiency of approximately 3 %. There was difficulty in maintaining these hybrid lines because they were weak,(More)
Iron chalcogenide Fe(Te,Se) attracted much attention due to its simple structure, which is favorable for probing the superconducting mechanism. Its less toxic nature compared with iron arsenides is also advantageous for applications of iron-based superconductors. By intercalating spacer layers, superconducting transition temperature has been raised over 40(More)
Erianthus, one of the genus in Saccharum complex, is important genetic resources for sugarcane improvement. The morphology and flowering phenology of 108 accessions belonging to Erianthus procerus and three types of E. arundinaceus collected from throughout Thailand were compared. PCA analysis based on 22 characteristics clearly supported the separation of(More)
