The shock of the blast created the right conditions for the elusive structures.
Scientists have crushed the quest for room temperature superconductors, but only at ridiculously high pressures.
Researchers use machine learning to speed up the trial-and-error search for new materials that can conduct electricity without resistance.
Defects in crystals may be useful for designing spintronic devices, which use the magnetic properties of electrons for processing information.
Scientists have learned how to measure the relationship between superconductivity and vibrating electrons.
