KAIST team develops next generation superconductor model

A research team at the Korean science university, KAIST, announced Tuesday that they've developed a new model for what's called a Hund's metal, which is an advanced kind of material with superconductivity at high temperatures.
In superconductors, electrons flow without electrical resistance, but this normally can happen only at temperatures almost as cold as outer space.
Even the examiners of the KAIST paper, who approved it, said that it's so groundbreaking that it's hard to accept what it's saying.
The paper has been published to the world's premier physics journal, 'Physical Review Letters.'
