Figuring out Superconductors

From the moment when physicists discovered superconductors — materials that conduct electricity without resistance at extremely low temperatures — they wondered whether they might be able to develop materials that exhibit the same properties at warmer temperatures. The key to doing so, a group of Harvard scientists say, may lie in another exotic material known as an antiferromagnet. Continue reading →
