Just as a copper wire conducts electricity better than a rubber tube, certain kinds of materials are better at becoming superconductive, a state defined by two main properties: The material offers zero resistance to electrical current and cannot be penetrated by magnetic fields.
But SnBi2Se4 requires very low temperatures and high pressures to become superconductive. The team searched once more through the database, selecting materials that have a similar crystal structure to SnBi2Se4 but a narrower 'band gap', a property related to atomic structure that allows electrons to jump up from one energy level to another and thus partake in electrical conductivity.

This issue occurs, for example, in realizing superconductive mesoscopic devices, which require the deposition of refractory metals (e.g., Nb [9] or V [10]); a consequence of the damage of the mask is the suppression of superconductivity and the increase in the residual resistance ratio of some types of films [11].
