Mottness
 n.— «Understanding the detailed mechanism for how quantum traffic jams (technically referred to as “Mottness” after the late Sir Neville Mott of Cambridge, UK) impact superconductivity in cuprates may point scientists toward new materials that can be made to act as superconductors at significantly higher temperatures suitable for real-world applications such as zero-loss energy generation and transmission systems and more powerful computers.» —“Quantum ‘Traffic Jam’ Revealed: Findings May Help Get Current Flowing At Higher Temperatures” ScienceDaily Aug. 29, 2008.
