In this section, we introduce the fundamental properties of the primary low-temperature superconductors (those typically requiring liquid He cooling to operate), which include the Nb-based superconductors that dominate the commercial application of superconductors as well as MgB2 and the Chevrel phase compounds (ternary Mo chalcogenides) that offer the potential of lower material costs in the future.
