The dream of room-temperature superconductivity takes center stage at the 26th Nicolás Cabrera International Summer School

Understanding superconductivity in all its forms has for decades been among scientists’ most prized ambitions. If we could ascertain why some materials, under certain conditions, lose their electrical resistance, we would be closer to the dream of far more efficient and environmentally friendly power grids. Further, superconducting materials are a valuable raw material input for the emerging quantum technology. The 26th Nicolás Cabrera International Summer School brings together leading specialists in “high-temperature superconductivity,” right now the holy grail for dozens of laboratories all around the world.
