- The new material, comprised of both a semiconductor and metal, has a special superconducting property at very low temperatures and could play a central role in the development of future electronics.
- The new material was born as a hybrid between a semiconducting nanowire and its electronic contact, and represents a way to make a perfect transition between the nanowire and a superconductor.
- In their publication in Nature Materials, the research group has demonstrated this perfect contact and its properties and has also shown that they can make a chip with billions of identical semiconductor-metal nanowire hybrids.
