When twisted, a double-layer of graphene will superconduct, allowing electrons to flow through it without resistance. The discovery was announced in two papers published this month. It could be a major step toward finding a viable superconductor. Current superconductors require cold conditions. The graphene-twist discovery could eliminate that requirement. A viable superconducting material could have massive implications for energy-savings in micro-electronics. Might it happen in 2018?
