Physics professors Frans Koffyberg (right), Fereidoon Razavi (middle), and Bozidar Mitrovic (left) discover a new superconductor. A superconductor is a material that conducts electricity at very low temperatures with zero electrical resistance. The Brock researchers found that a compound of the metals Barium, Lanthanum, Copper, and Oxygen become a superconductor at 30 degrees absolute, which is a record high temperature.
