105K or -168°C is the superconductive critical temperature for a ceramic material known as BSCCO 2223. Superconductivity research scientists Jeff Tallon and Bob Buckley based at Industrial Research Limited in Wellington developed this ceramic. The coolant used is liquid nitrogen, a far cheaper option than liquid helium.
