Caption: High-temperature superconductor. The component elements of a record-breaking superconductor created in late 1993. The small jars contain (left to right) bismuth, calcium and strontium. The large white cylinder contains oxygen. In front of these are some pieces of copper. In the foreground are plastic boxes, containing samples of the superconductor. This material contains atom-thick layers of a bismuth calcium strontium cuprate in a crystal substrate. This becomes superconducting at 250 Kelvin (-23 Celsius), some 117 degrees Kelvin warmer than the previous record. Photographed at the CNRS laboratory, near Paris.
