A team of scientists successfully builds a superconducting material for the first time ever.
What’s new? It permits the unrestrained flow of electricity that can even work at room temperature. Isn’t that great?
MIT Technology Review reports that it remained as one of the top goals of physicists for decades and was also countered as next to impossible
At present, an ultra-condensed material made it possible to act as a superconductor at a temperature of 58 F
This is the first superconductor to work above freezing temperatures.
The material which is used was made under such extreme conditions.
As reported by MIT Tech Scientists of the University of Rochester who produced it also don’t entirely understand it.
On Wednesday, the team’s research, in the journal Nature, stated that the material is a composition of sulfur, carbon, and hydrogen that got smushed 2.5 million times the air pressure of Earth’s atmosphere while later being blasted with a laser.
Currently, the superconductor is very small to use.
If everything works well at under less pressure and larger scales, it will allow us to re-imagine our energy and technology infrastructure. Thus, paving a way to being more efficient, cleaner, and more powerful.
In a press release, co-author Ashkan Salamat of the University of Nevada Las Vegas told-
“We live in a semiconductor society, and with this kind of technology, you can take society into a superconducting society where you’ll never need things like batteries again,”
