Ultraconductus: Innovative Electrical Conductors

Creating Revolutionary Electrical Conductors

What type of material would be ideal as an electrical conductor? The obvious answer is something with zero electrical resistance—a superconductor. But superconductors are not without limitations. What if there were a material that had electrical conductivity better than that of common metals and approaching that of superconductors, but without their operating constraints? A team at Los Alamos National Laboratory has developed a process known as Ultraconductus, which produces these revolutionary electrical conductors.
