Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
The property of zero electrical resistance in some substances at very low absolute temperatures.
- ‘At the end of 2000 superconductivity in metal alloys and compounds appeared to remain trapped by a glass ceiling.’
- ‘Such variation in the transition temperatures allows the salient energy scales for antiferromagnetic order and superconductivity to be varied over a wide range and examined in two very different limits.’
- ‘It aims to develop technologies across a wide range of disciplines including superconductivity, nanotechnology, data storage, photonics and power electronics.’
- ‘They are developing a new class of electrical components that operate at higher temperatures, such as switches and capacitors, along with superconductivity and thermal-management technologies.’
- ‘These chemically complex materials can, in fact, provide more information about superconductivity and magnetism than supposedly simple materials.’
We take a look at several popular, though confusing, punctuation marks.
