Sciences In The News
The long-sought goal of finding a superconductor that works at room temperature has been achieved, showing promise for future applications in personal electronics and other technologies, researchers say.
It’s the kind of discovery scientists wait a lifetime for. The kind that, with a little - or a lot - more work, could completely change the world as we know it.
EVER SINCE DUTCH PHYSICIST HEIKE ONNES DISCOVERED SUPERCONDUCTIVITY IN 1911, scientists have strived for its perfect formulation.
Physicists from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the University of Rochester have made a breakthrough in the long sought-after quest for a room-temperature superconductor, what they call the “holy grail” of energy efficiency.
Scientists have long searched for a material that is superconductive. While there has been a few successes, achieving superconductivity at room temperature has been elusive. But now, scientists have created a material that can conduct electricity efficiently at close to room temperature up to 15° Celsius or 59° Fahrenheit.
Scientists have found the first material that displays a much sought-after property at room temperature.
