A team from the University of Toronto has developed a new technique that transforms semiconductors into superconductors using the most simple of products — Scotch tape. The international team of physicists used the household product to induce high-temperature superconductivity in a semiconductor for the first time, and they believe it could pave the way for new devices with greater energy-efficiency. If Scotch tape is the latest breakthrough product in the world of physics, surely it’s only a matter of time before Blu-Tac steps up to the plate, right?
