Tuning the bonds of paired quantum particles to create dissipationless flow

Electrons flowing through power lines and computers inevitably encounter resistance; when they do, they lose some of their energy, which dissipates as heat. That's why laptops get hot after being used for too long and why the server farms that power.....»»
