Theorists created a gravitational model that is mathematically analogous to one for a standard superconducting device, extending the ways that the tools of general relativity can lead to insights into condensed matter physics.

Researchers used a magnetic material to create a difference in current-carrying properties between two perpendicular directions in a superconductor. They could easily change the directions with an external magnetic field, which could be useful in superconducting devices.

Weaving together experimental clues and theoretical insights, three physicists devised in 1957 the first fundamental theory of superconductivity, one of the most successful theories in solid state physics.

New evidence confirms that the lattice of so-called magnetic vortices in a superconductor can melt, just like a real solid. The vortices directly affect the amount of electric current a superconductor can carry.
