Semiconductors and Superconductors By Vinooja Thurairethinam 13 V Superconductors As a conductor is cooled, its electrical resistance decreases. The colder the material, the less the atoms in the conductor vibrate and thus there is less resistance to the flow of electrons through it. However, when the temperature is below the critical temperature, the resistance of […]Read more
