First report of superconductivity in a nickel oxide material

Share This Article

An illustration depicts a key step in creating a new type of superconducting material: Much like pulling blocks from a tower in a Jenga game, scientists used chemistry to neatly remove a layer of oxygen atoms. This flipped the material into a new atomic structure - a nickelate - that can conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency. (Greg Stewart/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory)
