Understanding High Temperature Superconductivity. So much of the energy that we generate is lost to inefficiencies and resistance in the wires or conductors through which the electrons travel. It doesnt mater if the electricity is made from coal,natural gas, wind,nuclear or solar technologies when it comes to transport losses.

What Is Unconventional Superconductivity? Superconductivity was discovered in Hg in 1911 by the group of Kamerling Onnes in Leiden (Holland). The mystery of superconductivity was, however, not uncovered until 1957 when Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) proposed the electron-phonon coupling picture. In the BCS picture, two electrons near the Fermi surface with opposite momenta and spins will form […]

Moscow Researchers Study Superconductivity. As the search for room temperature superconductor technology continues, researchers around the world are making remarkable discoveries that hopefully will take us where we want to go. Superconductors do not lose any energy along the way in transmission so in theory this would allow is to use considerably less energy than […]
