The Science of Existence (64-7) Fractal Superconductivity

 Fractal Superconductivity

There are various classes of superconducting substances, each with a different molecular structure at the atomic bonding level. Researchers create novel superconductors by manipulating atomic arrangements.

The oxygen in a copper-oxide semiconductor settles into a fractal pattern when superconducting. The more fractal, the better the superconductor’s performance.

Fractals are a mathematical construct, displaying a self-similar pattern that is scale indifferent. In fractals, similar patterns may be discerned regardless of how closely a fractal is examined.

Fractals repeatedly appear in Nature, from lightning bolts to shorelines to cauliflower heads. A snapshot of the solar wind shows a fractal signature, imposed by the magnetic field of the Sun.
