Superconductivity Could Be Reinvented

Rice University scientists conducted a study on superconductivity. Physicists Pengcheng Dai and Andriy Nevidimoskyy, with some of their colleagues, used simulations and neutron scattering experiments that show that the atomic structure of materials to reveal tiny distortions of the crystal lattice in a so-called iron pnictide compound of sodium, iron, nickel, and arsenic.
