Superconductivity is a unique property that allows electrons flow to without resistance beyond a specific temperature due to the increases in motion of paired electrons. . At present the temperature of superconductors is about half way to absolute zero. This makes it difficult to scale the superconducting nanomaterials on a large scale. Therefore, research is focused on raising the superconducting temperature to room temperature. Once this is achieved, the materials can have immense potential in applications such as electronics, computing, and energy storage.
