Schematics of EDLT (image) National Institutes of Natural Sciences Share Print E-Mail Caption Before applying perturbations by the mechanical pressure or the electric gate voltage, the organic correlated material stays in an insulating state since the electrons seat themselves snugly in their "reserved seatsâ€� at the molecules. After the gate voltage is applied, the number of electrons changes and gives rise to vacant (hole-doped) or standing (electron-doped) seats. The mechanical pressure causes the change in the distance between the seats. The appropriate combination of these perturbations switches the material to be a superconductor.
