ENERGY CONVERSION DEVICES’ SCIENTISTS FIND EVIDENCE OF SUPERCONDUCTIVITY IN FLUORINATED MULTIPHASE SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIAL AT 32 DEGREES C

By CBR Staff Writer

Stanford Ovshinsky’s Energy Conversion Devices Inc in Troy, Michigan seems to have taken the cryogenics out of superconductivity altogether: it says its scientists found strong evidence of superconductivity in a fluorinated multiphase superconducting material at 32`C – that’s 90`F, a hot day; the test used was the Meissner Effect, the repulsion of magnetic fields in the presence of superconductivity, and the effect, albeit in less than 1% of the material, was 10 times the strength of that reported hitherto.
