Room-temperature superconductors could revolutionize electronics – an electrical engineer explains the materials’ potential

Superconductors make highly efficient electronics, but the ultralow temperatures and ultrahigh pressures make them costly and difficult to use. Room-temperature superconductors promise to change that.
A look inside the quantum computing process. Quantum technology is a $142 billion opportunity that could employ 229,000 Canadians by 2040. (Photonic)

What quantum technology means for Canada’s future

Canada is well positioned to gain far-reaching economic and social benefits from the rapidly developing quantum industry, but it must act now to secure its success.
