A silver path for high temperature superconductivity

Superconductors are materials that conduct electricity without loss of energy when cooled to sufficiently low temperatures. This sort of perpetual movement of electrons allows the creation of large magnetic fields for applications such as magnetic resonance imaging, which is used in hospitals for diagnostics or experiments for the discovery of new particles in large CERN accelerators. These niche applications could become much more widespread if one could avoid having to cool the materials at very low temperatures.… Read the rest
