Copper is a ductile metal with excellent electrical conductivity, and finds extensive use as an electrical conductor, heat conductor, as a building material, and as a component of various alloys.
Because Mylar is an electrical conductor, the streamers also can severely shock or electrocute anyone who touches one hanging from a live wire, utility officials cautioned.
As the darkened atmosphere thins and becomes a poorer electrical conductor, the circuit may connect instead through the moon's interior, passing through volcanic plumes and enhancing their bluish glow.
It is an electrical conductor that has an outer sleeve of copper metallurgically bonded to a solid steel core.
To make it possible to produce these devices on a silicon chip, the researchers ended up turning the conventional coil inductor inside out, in effect "wrapping" the nickel-iron core around the electrical conductor.

London, Nov 10 (ANI): A material, called solution-deposited beta-alumina-traditionally used as an electrical conductor, could be turned into a thin film insulator which could be used in e-book readers and other energy-efficient displays, thanks to a new method developed by Johns Hopkins materials scientists.
They point out that graphene is an excellent electrical conductor, and carbon nanotubes are good candidates for transparent conductors because they provide conduction of electricity using very little material.
Because holes can migrate freely from atom to atom (equivalent to electrons hopping from one oxygen atom to another), the material is an electrical conductor.
