  • More specifically, while the electrons in the cuprates are strongly correlated -- meaning the energy of one electron is tied to the energy of the others -- the electrons in the iron-pnictide superconductors behave more like those of a normal metal in which the electrons do not (to first approximation) interact.

  • The timing of the testing phase for ARCS was ideal because in the preceding months, a new class of superconducting materials - pnictide compounds based on iron and arsenic - was discovered.
