Wired for magnetism. The
superconductivity of wires like these
breaks down when the magnetic field gets
too high, which limits the strength of the
field these coils can generate. A newly
discovered effect increases the breakdown
field by ten times, although so far it only
works in a nanometers-thick, layered
material.
