• Superconductivity and Fusion Energy: The Tantalizing Dance of Promise and Challenge

    Superconductivity, a concept as old as the 20th century, is the notion that specific materials can conduct DC electricity without resistance. Imagine a world where electricity flows seamlessly, unlocking limitless possibilities. Now, juxtapose that with the world of fusion energy, the most awaited and promising clean energy source. Both of these, although in different stages, hold keys to revolutionizing our future, but not without their challenges. Superconductivity’s Century-Long Chase In 1911, Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh-Onnes identified the first superconductor: mercury at bone-chilling temperatures. Ever since, the global scientific community has…
