Trapping vortices key to high-current superconductors

The emerging technology of the scanning tunneling microscope has finally provided a picture at the atomic level that may lead to a theory to guide future engineers. Researchers have found that irradiation of the material creates nanometer-sized defects that trap swirling eddies in the flow of electrons, keeping them out of the way so more current can flow.
