Scientists have found the first material that displays a much sought-after property at room temperature.
It is superconducting, which means electrical current flows through it with perfect efficiency – with no energy wasted as heat.
At the moment, a lot of the energy we generate is lost because of electrical resistance, which is lost as heat.
So room temperature “superconducting” materials could revolutionise the electrical grid.
Until this point, achieving superconductivity has required coo…
