New law for superconductors

New law for superconductors | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
MIT researchers have discovered a new mathematical relationship — between material thickness, temperature, and electrical resistance — that appears to hold in all superconductors. They describe their findings in the latest issue of Physical Review B.
The result could shed light on the nature of superconductivity and could also lead to better-engineered superconducting circuits for applications like quantum computing and ultralow-power computing.

Superconductivity at higher temperatures / Max Plank Scoiety

Superconductivity at higher temperatures / Max Plank Scoiety | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
There is a growing understanding of the conditions required for superconductivity and how it can be achieved at realistic temperatures.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Nearly two per cent of the electrical energy generated by power stations is lost in the grid. In Germany alone, this is equivalent to the power delivered by a medium-sized coal power plant. These losses may increase in the future, as power from large offshore wind farms is transported to the landlocked south. Superconductors could provide a remedy if they were able to deliver power to consumers without loss or leakage, even in summery temperatures."
