Superconductivity is an interesting classical quantum mechanical phenomenon in the field of condensed matter physics. Heike Kamerlingh Onnes discovered it in 1911 in Leiden, the Netherlands. After 100 years of active study, it remains to be a surprising field of research. The key point is that superconductors only work at low temperatures. By doping the material, we can raise this temperature limit. This can be done by field effect, intercalation or mechanical pressure. Imagine household applications or transport systems that can run forever without loss of power! Other exotic physical phenomena shown by superconductivity include the Meissner effect, allowing you to levitate whilst standing on a superconductor! In electronic devices, the superconductivity phenomenon is used for rapid on-off switches by changing either the external magnetic field or temperature [1].
