Hexbyte Glen Cove Long live superconductivity! Short flashes of light with sustaining impact

An infrared laser pulse induces superconductivity at high temperatures in K3C60. After a prolonged excitation, this light-induced state becomes metastable for many nanoseconds. Credit: © Jörg Harms / MPSD Superconductivity—the ability of a material to transmit an electric current without loss—is a quantum effect that, despite years of research, is still limited to very...
