Thorium superconductivity: Scientists discover new high-temperature superconductor


The experimental superconducting properties of Thorium and its sister substance, potassium helium are thought to play a large role in the development of superconductors. Unfortunately, no superconducting superconductor ever has been designed to work well in temperatures that reach the coldest parts of the planet.

Even at extremely high temperatures, superconducting superconductors have been limited because they have little or no coolant. However, superconductors using thorium and its sister substance, potassium helium, have exhibited two fascinating characteristics: high pressure to maintain a continuous stable temperature, and long stretch albedo retention. In a series of experiments, Dr. Victor Swangard of the University of Michigan Department of Physics discovered a technique for conducting ultra high current sources in vacuum. Dr. Swangard’s team explored the addition of albedo recovery and the level of room temperature at which superconductors can remain stable in vacuum.

The ultimate goal is to build superconductors that are superconducting at high speeds without expensive cooling (and hence expensive cooling causes bubbles to form in superconducting electrons’ DNA). To accomplish this, researchers will first use silver iodide as a superconducting compound. Silver iodide is a highly abundant non-toxic, non-radiant silver that has not been directly studied in experimental quantum physics before. As a result, few more experiments have yet been done to find any reliable polymers.

Dr. Henry Harrelson of Cornell University has been using silver iodide. Although his development of the silver iodide method does not involve “potential electric as well as thermodynamic quantum physics”, Dr. Harrelson believes that silver iodide could contribute to lowering the temperature of superconductors for hundreds of years. He is also intrigued by the fact that the superconductors of the future will operate under extreme low temperatures. “We’ve already spotted those hypothetical cold superconductors in the Great Lakes. I don’t see anyone slowing down much before they reach superconducting temperatures”.

Professor J. Christian Curl of the University of California, San Diego has been using copper oxide and silver iodide to conduct ultra-high current sources in vacuum. Dr. Curl refers to these new superconductors as simply “miraculous”, because they maintain their magnetic properties when operating in perfect vacuum conditions at super-compression, yet remain stable in extremely cold temperatures. In the case of silver iodide, Dr. Curl says that if the limited availability of coolant is addressed, these new superconductors may be more suitable for use as polar accelerators for electric generators.

Other proof of principle experiments in quantum physics are being conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), University of Texas at Dallas, and the University of Michigan’s Department of Physics. To date, no further research on superconductors has been conducted.
