Trip to “The Golden Trough”, the finest in bad cuisine


How does a superconductor work?

Oh, it's really simple.

Electrons are half integer spin particles. In a superconductor, you get a pair of electrons to act as a single particle with integer spin properties. This electron pair now operates by the Bose-Einstein statistical model instead of the Fermi-Dirac statistical model and is no longer affected by the exclusion principle.

I learned something new. Any time Florence says “It's really simple”, I'm not going to understand a word of it.

Частицы с целочисленным спином (бозоны) описываются статистикой Бозе-Эйнштейна, а с дробным спином (фермионы) – статистикой Ферми-Дирака. Также один из фундаментальных принципов квантовой механики, принцип Паули (принцип запрета) описывает поведение фермионов
