A rendering of superconducting Cooper pairs in the magic-angle multilayer graphene family. Each successive layer is offset slightly, which alters the graphene's conductivity.

Just when you would think graphene could not possibly be more amazing than it already is, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology prove that to be furthest from the truth, discovering that if two or more graphene layers are stacked at an offset angle, the conductive properties of graphene become superconductive.

Initially discovered in 2018, the MIT researchers recently publish...
