Hello, let me try to explain that last paragraph above a little
better. Since I cannot find any literature on the questions posed by
that last paragraph.

Suppose you have all types of superconductors, the elemental and the
compound high temperature superconductors such as the perovskites. And
you find in research that none of these is able to hold a 10 amperage
current or higher, no matter what the temperature is. So that all
superconductors lose their superconduction abilities at 10 amperage
current or higher.

However, silver at 30 degrees Kelvin is able to hold a 10 amperage
current better than any superconductor regardless of their transition
temperature. And at 4 degrees Kelvin, silver holds a 20 amperage
current better than any other material regardless of whether
superconducting or not.

Physicists in superconductivity have done a very poor job of
researching conduction and superconduction with regards to the
amperage related to temperature. For the past 50 years of research
into superconduction, has been almost a one sided or one eyed endeavor
of only temperature and never a temperature with amperage research.

So what I am saying if the above is true, that silver has been always
the best conductor of electricity because, although silver never
superconducts, still, its conduction beats out the superconductors
when amperage current is included in the analysis.

fair archiving of AP posts for the past 15 years as seen here:
