Observation of a metallic superfluid in a numerical experiment

We report the observation, in Monte Carlo simulations, of a novel type of quantum ordered state: the metallic superfluid. The metallic superfluid features Ohmic resistance to counterflows of protons and electrons, while featuring dissipationless coflows of electrons and protons. One of the candidates for a physical realization of this remarkable state of matter is hydrogen or its isotopes under high compression. This adds another potential candidate to the presently known quantum dissipationless states, namely, superconductors, superfluid liquids and vapors, and supersolids.
