Worlds first hybrid superconducting electrical cable

Worlds first hybrid superconducting electrical cable

Russian scientists have successfully tested the world’s first hybrid superconducting electrical cable. This small cable consists of magnesium diboride, a superconductor, and a cavity for the transportation of liquid hydrogen. The latter, while cooling diboride to a temperature of 40 degrees Kelvin, causes the effect of superconductivity. The problem of superconductivity, that is, the material’s […]
