Superconductors conduct electricity without any energy loss and could be ideal for many energy related applications. Unfortunately, even high-temperature superconductors require very cold temperatures, which limit their use. However, these high-temperature superconductors do enter a mysterious, nearly-superconducting state called the "pseudogap phase" close to room temperature. Researchers at Cornell University have revealed for the first time, directionality in the arrangement of electrons in this state.
