Recent experiments have revealed several key features of the unique nature of the new, high-transition temperature cuprate superconductors. These results provide an easily understandable, physical picture of the structure and behavior of the charge carriers in these materials, and point to the mechanism responsible for their existence. These experiments are now placing strong constraints on possible theoretical models of the phenomenon.
