Re: [hreg] Meeting super conductor
- No! Nuclear Energy is akin to the technology related to Atomic Bomb, i.e Fission, that generates heat and if controlled by a thing called MODERATOR medium, it can generate steam to run turbines.Whereas SUPERCONDUCTIVITY is related to a physical property of Metallic elements, and also conducting polymers, called Conductivity or Electrical Resistance to flow of electricity or electrons, which is affected by Temperature. There are materials whose resistance increases as temperature increases, and others vice versa. Certain materials whencooled to Liquis Heloium Teperature ~ 4 degrees Kelvin or -269 deg. C, show an abrupt drop of resistance aproaching close to zero (not exactly zero), these substances or materials are called SUPERCONDUICTORS.Bashir A.
