Despite being a low temperature phenomenon till date, superconductivity has found numerous applications in diverse fields of medicine, science and engineering. The great scientific interest in the phenomenon as well as its practical utility has motivated extensive efforts to discover and understand new superconductors. We report the observation of superconductivity at ambient temperature and pressure conditions in films and pellets of a nanostructured material that is composed of silver… Expand

Size dependent breakdown of superconductivity in ultranarrow nanowires.
TLDR
Experimental evidence for a superconductivity breakdown in ultranarrow quasi-1D aluminum nanowires is reported, indicating for a certain critical size limit of the order of approximately 10 nm, below which a "superconducting" nanowire is no longer a superconductor. Expand
Onset of superconductivity in ultrathin granular metal films.
TLDR
Two classes of theories explaining a nearly universal resistance threshold forsuperconductivity have emerged and both classes involve the quenching of thesequantum fluctuations. Expand
Superconductivity in diamond
TLDR
Electrical resistivity, magnetic susceptibility, specific heat and field-dependent resistance measurements show that boron-doped diamond is a bulk, type-II superconductor below the superconducting transition temperature Tc ≈ 4 K; superconductivity survives in a magnetic field up to Hc2(0) ≥ 3.5 T.

Superconductivity in films of Pb/PbSe core/shell nanocrystals.

Superconductivity in films of electronically coupled colloidal lead nanocrystals is reported through the conversion of the oxides present on the surface of the nanoparticles to chalcogenides, which allows for a 10(9)-fold increase in the conductivity. Expand
