A new superconductor has been developed at Brookhaven National Laboratory:

The superconductor is at the junction between two non-superconducting materials, is about 1 nm thick, and has a transition temperature of 50K.

I like that..
They didn't mentioned the materials right?
I'm sure they will soon find a superconductor usable at room temperatures. :smile:

I heard a long time ago that molecule size wires will superconduct. maybe its just the same thing.
