When an electric current
passes through any material
, some part of that current is lost to resistance
. A material with little resistance to the flow of electricity
is called a conductor
, and these materials are useful for building electric devices. Many conductors, when cooled to temperatures near absolute zero
, lose all resistance to current. A material with no resistance to the flow of electricity is a superconductor. Recent developments hint that some unusual materials may be superconductive even at room temperatures.
