superconductor breakthrough from Italian scientists
April 5, 2012 Leave a comment
Great discovery in the semiconductor industry, Italian researchers have found out how to transport electricity from photovoltaic panels to around the world without loss of energy along the path. The journal Science recently published work, saying that the process can lead to superconductivity at room temperature. Scientists say the discovery is the key to optimize the transport of power over long distances. For example, you can bring electricity from a solar power station in the Sahara desert to consumers in Latin America.
The research team is led by Stefano Dal Conte of Sacred Heart Catholic University of Brescia, in collaboration with the laboratories of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (I.N.F.M.) in Trieste.
The discovery could revolutionize the transport of electricity.
