Superconductivity News

Superconductivity is a quantum mechanical phenomenon in which certain materials can conduct electricity without resistance when cooled below a critical temperature. This remarkable property results in zero energy loss from the electrical current, making superconductors highly efficient. The phenomenon was first discovered in 1911 by Heike Kamerlingh Onnes, who observed it in mercury at temperatures near absolute zero. Since then, various other materials, including certain alloys and ceramic compounds, have been found to exhibit superconductivity at higher temperatures, though still significantly below room temperature.
