  • Understanding the physical nature of the electron pairs that define superconductors is one of the most important problems in condensed matter physics, Lebed said.

    Physicist Finds Exotic Superconductivity | Impact Lab

  • His experiment gave very direct evidence of the existence of the so-called energy gap in superconductors, which was one of the most important predictions of the theory of superconductivity developed by Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer (awarded the Nobel Prize in 1972).

  • In 1962 this led to the prediction of completely new phenomena in superconductors and in particular to the effects generally known as the Josephson effects.

    Press Release: The 1973 Nobel Prize in Physics

  • The experiments showed that his conjecture was correct and his tunnelling method soon became the dominating method to study the energy gap in superconductors.

  • Last week, in the journal Nature, researchers led by Arthur Hebard of AT&T Bell Labs reported that when bucky balls are spiked with potassium, they carry electricity with no resistance, even at temperatures above where most such "superconductors" work.

  • But under special circumstances, quantum theory predicts exotic states of matter, such as superconductors in which electrons flow with no resistance and Bose-Einstein condensates in which atoms move as a collective whole.

  • These "superconductors" had to be very cold, and it took physicists nearly 50 years to come up with an explanation for them: The electron-electron repulsion in these low-temperature superconductors was so weak that with the mediation of lattice vibrations, electrons overcame it, paired up and glided freely without the bumping and heating.
