During his further experiments, he soon recognized that the observed effect could not be identical to the expected decrease of resistance. The resistance change took place within a temperature interval of only a few hundredths of a degree and, hence, it resembled more a resistance jump than a continuous decrease. 1 shows the curve published by Kamerlingh-Onnes [5]. 2 K) within some hundredths of a degree came a sudden fall not foreseen by the vibrator theory of resistance, that had framed, bringing the resistance at once less than a millionth of its original value at the melting point.

At that time, the ideas about the mechanism of the electric conduction were only poorly developed. It was known that it must be electrons being responsible for charge transport. Also one had measured the temperature dependence of the electric resistance of many metals, and it had been found that near room temperature the resistance decreases linearly with decreasing temperature. However, at low temperatures, this decrease was found to become weaker and weaker. In principle, there were three possibilities to be discussed: 1) The resistance could approach zero value with decreasing temperature (James Dewar, 1904).

Here, the phase of the wave function can change by an integer multiple of 2π, since this does not affect the wave function. We can have the same situation also on a macroscopic scale. Imagine that we have an arbitrary wave propagating without damping in a ring with radius R. The wave can become stationary, if an integer number n of wavelengths ???? exactly fits into the ring. Then we have the condition n???? = 2πR or kR = n, using the wave vector k = 2π/????. If this condition is violated, after a few revolutions the wave disappears due to interference.
