Researchers at the George Washington University studying superconductivity at room temperature found that it could be used efficiently at room temperature
During the process of superconductivity, there occurs no electrical resistance when the materials are cooled below a critical temperature. The scientists assumed that superconducting materials cooled at very low temperature temperatures (minus 180 degrees Celsius or minus 292 degrees Fahrenheit), which limited its application.
However, scientists at the George Washington University discovered that by eliminating some of the electrical resistance, superconductors allow efficient electricity generation, enhanced energy transmission, and powerful computing systems. The research work was published in the journal Physical Review Letters in January 2019 issue.
