Scientists Establish Superconductivity at Record Temperatures


Researchers at the Univ. of Chicago (UC) have created a unique metal-hydride material that achieves superconductivity at the highest temperatures ever recorded: 250 K (–23°C), 50 K more than the previous record.

Superconductive materials have no electrical resistance and can expel magnetic fields. They are capable of conducting electricity perfectly, but only at extremely low temperatures...
