Physicists use offshoot of string theory to describe puzzling behavior of superconductors

Physicists are divided on whether string theory is a viable theory of everything, but many agree that it offers a new way to look at physical phenomena that have otherwise proven difficult to describe. In the past decade, physicists have used string theory to build a connection between quantum and gravitational mechanics, known as gauge/gravity duality. MIT physicists have now used that connection to describe a specific physical phenomenon - the behavior of a type of high-temperature superconductor.
