[Physicsworld.com video about superconductivity from the 2011 APS March Meeting]
In 2008, the discovery of iron-based, high-temperature superconductors excited scientists and a new class of superconductors was created to compete with the old. Laura H Green of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign spoke with Physicsworld.com's Joe McEntee at the 2011 APS March Meeting about why so much excitement continues to come out of this discovery.
Physicists celebrated the centennial of the discovery of superconductors at this year's March Meeting held in Dallas.
