"Magic" twist in stacked graph shows potentially strong superconducting behavior

Moiré pattern in stacked graphene layers Illustration: Pablo Jarillo-Herrero (MIT) High-temperature electricity without resistance could revolutionize electronics. It may take less energy to move electrical charge, which means more powerful, more efficient electronics that are cheaper to operate. It could lower energy costs and could even help researchers realize better quantum computers. Scientists have come one step closer with a …
