  By <a href="">Natalie Wolchover</a> -<br><br><a href="">The microscopic structure of high-temperature superconductors has long puzzled scientists seeking to harness their virtually limitless technological potential. Now at last researchers have deciphered the cryptic structure of one class of the superconductors, providing a basis for theories about how they manage to transport electricity with perfect efficiency when cooled, and how scientists might raise their operating temperature closer to the climes of everyday life.<br></a><br><a href="">READ MORE ON QUANTA MAGAZINE</a>
