Superconductivity has been observed for the first time in a quasicrystal – a solid material with atoms that are arranged in an ordered pattern that does not have translational symmetry. Keisuke Kamiya and Noriaki Sato at Nagoya University in Japan and colleagues created the quasicrystal by altering the ratio of elements in a specialized metal alloy – and found that it is a superconductor a temperatures lower than 0.05 K. The discovery could lead to the creation of new materials that display fractal superconductivity.
