MIT’s ‘magic’ material findings could shed light on superconductivity

MIT researchers and colleagues have turned a “magic” material composed of atomically thin layers of carbon into three useful electronic devices. The work could usher in a new generation of quantum electronic devices for applications including quantum computing, according to an MIT article by Elizabeth A. Thomson. The devices can be superconducting, or conduct electricity without resistance. They do so through an unconventional mechanism that could give new insights into the physics of superconductivity. The researchers report their results in the May 3, 2021 issue of Nature Nanotechnology.
