Superconductivity

PROCESS AND TECHNOLOGY STATUS – Superconductivity is the ability of certain metals, alloys and ceramic materials to let electrical current flow with no electrical resistance and energy dissipation. Superconductivity appears at below a certain (critical) temperature, which is between 30K and 120K (-243°C and -153°C) for high-temperature superconductors (HTS) and below 20K (-253°C) for the low-temperature superconductors (LTS). […]
