5 Superconducting Ceramics Superconductivity is a phenomenon in which the electrical resistivity of a material drops to nearly zero at some low temperature – This is the “critical temperature”, written T c Some metals and metal alloys exhibit superconductivity at T c near 0-20K! (very inconvenient temperatures to work at) • Some ceramics have T c around 100K ( much nicer) Complex formulas. Examples: – YBa 2 Cu 3 O 7 with T c = 92K – HgBa 2 Ca 2 Cu 2 O 3 with T c = 153 K demo

8 How does electrical conduction occur in solids? Has to do with electronic structure of solids Energy bands result when large numbers of atoms combine to form a crystal The spacing between the filled (“valence” and unfilled (“conduction”) bands is the “bandgap” with energy E g – The size of E g will determine the properties of the material.

10 Band Theory As the number of atoms in a solid increases, the number of available energy levels increases. The number of energy levels in a cluster of atoms = the total number available from the individual atoms (for Li 2s orbitals; 1 valence electron each Li atom)

11 Band Theory As the number of atoms in the group increases, the energy levels get closer and closer together,
