A new theory of superconductivity

Credit: CC0 Public Domain A scientist from the Division of Quantum Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Tsukuba has formulated a new theory of superconductivity. Based on the calculation of the ‘Berry compound’, this model helps to explain new experimental results better than the current theory. The work may enable future electrical networks to transmit energy without loss. Superconductors …
