Proposed Milestone Name High-Temperature Superconductivity, 1987  +
Proposed Milestone Plaque Citation High-Temperature Superconductivity, 1987 High-Temperature Superconductivity, 1987 On this site in 1987, yttrium-barium-copper-oxide, YBa2Cu3O7, the first material to exhibit superconductivity at temperatures above the boiling point of liquid nitrogen (77k), was discovered. This ushered in an era of accelerated superconductor materials science and engineering research worldwide, and led to advanced applications of superconductivity in energy, medicine, communications, and transportation.icine, communications, and transportation.  +
