World’s smallest superconductor found, and it’s less than 1nm wide

Excerpt: Scientists at the University of Ohio have discovered what they claim to be the world’s smallest superconductor, which is less than 1nm in width. The superconductor works on a molecular scale and is formed by four pairs of molecules. The research was published in Nature’s Nanotechnology paper, and has been called a path-breaking idea in the field of nanoscale electronics. Read article here.
