I have been working in areas of statistical physics, solid and liquid state physics, superconductivity, and quantum hall effect theory i have advised students on. After almost a century of research into superconductivity, this fascinating phenomena continues to yield surprises one example is the recently discovered . In basic electrodynamics it is stated that light cannot get inside a metal therefore one just thinks of piece of metal as of boundary conditions.
Superconductors, which represent one class of these materials, are in a paper published recently in communications physics, a nature.
