Abstract

We have traced the recent events that resulted in the discovery of superconductivity above 77 K, the temperature of liquid nitrogen, and we have examined the nature of these new compounds and the major challenges they present. Now we want to assess the impact that these new superconductors are likely to have in the future and try to understand why their discovery has triggered something of a revolution in the scientific world. In other words, why is high-temperature superconductivity such big news?
