Researchers find water doped graphite flakes exhibit superconductive properties at high temperature

By doping graphite, researchers in Germany have reported that they found tantalizing hints of superconductivity at room-temperatures and far above, like water boiling point (100C.). Superconductivity is a property which describes zero resistance electrical conductivity, however this property has only been observed at temperatures lower than -100C. Graphite has been found to exhibit superconductivity in [...]Hints of superconductivity at room temperature might hold far-reaching consequences is a post from ZME Science. © ZME Science - All Rights Reserved.
