Navy files for patent on room-temperature superconductor

A scientist working for the U.S. Navy has filed for a patent on a room-temperature superconductor, representing a possible paradigm shift in vitality transmission and laptop techniques.

Salvatore Cezar Pais is listed because the inventor on the Navy’s patent application made public by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Thursday.

The software claims {that a} room-temperature superconductor might be constructed utilizing a wire with an insulator core and an aluminum PZT (lead zirconate titanate) coating deposited by vacuum evaporation with a thickness of the London penetration depth and polarized after deposition.

An electromagnetic coil is circumferentially positioned across the coating such that when the coil is activated with a pulsed present, a non-linear vibration is induced, enabling room temperature superconductivity.

“This idea allows the transmission {of electrical} energy with none losses and reveals optimum thermal administration (no heat dissipation),” based on the patent doc, “which results in the design and growth of novel vitality era and harvesting gadgets with monumental advantages to civilization.”

No information was included within the patent paperwork.

A room-temperature superconductor is a fabric that’s able to exhibiting superconductivity at temperatures round 77 levels Fahrenheit.

Current superconductors work when cooled close to absolute zero, and the warmest superconductor, hydrogen sulfide, works at -95 levels Fahrenheit.

Others have claimed to have invented a room-temperature superconductor previously. Last yr, two Indian scientists claimed to have made a room-temperature superconductor utilizing particles of gold and silver. Other physicists are utilizing pressurized lanthanum and hydrogen.
