Got Mass? Princeton Scientists Observe Electrons Become Both Heavy and Speedy

June 15, 2012 10:40 am | by Catherine Zandonella, Princeton University | Comments

A Princeton University-led team of scientists has shown how electrons moving in certain solids can behave as though they are a thousand times more massive than free electrons, yet at the same time act as speedy superconductors. The observation of these seemingly contradictory electron properties is critical to the understanding of how certain materials become superconducting, in which electrons can flow without resistance.
