Defects in the atomic lattice of solids are sometimes desired. For example, atomic vacancies, single ones or more elaborated defective structures, can generate localized magnetic moments in a non-magnetic crystal lattice. Increasing their density to a few percent, magnetic order appears. Furthermore, certain interfaces can give rise to localized two-dimensional superconductivity with a broad range of critical temperatures. Old and new experimental facts emphasize the need to join e orts to start using systematically/ ordered defects” in solids to achieve room temperature superconductivity and magnetic order.
