Silane as a future superconductor..!

Superconductivity is a phenomenon of complete and sudden disappearance of electrical resistance of materials at low temperatures.The phenomenon of superconductivity is of vast potential importance in technology because it means that charge can flow through a superconductor without losing its energy to thermal energy.But the problem is that this phenomenon occurs atextremely low temperatures and I don’t think that its a good idea to operate devices at such low temperatures. 132 more words

New phase in iron-based superconductors discovered

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have discovered a previously unknown phase in a class of superconductors called iron arsenides. This sheds light on a debate over the interactions between atoms and electrons that are responsible for their unusual superconductivity. 659 more words
