For instance, putting a topological insulator right next to a superconductor could create an unusual state at the interface in which unseen particles could pop into existence and be observed.
In substation applications, composite surge arrestors, breakers and insulators, due to the non-brittle housing, can overcome the damage to neighboring installations that occurs due to fracture of porcelain-housed apparatus.
With new technological inventions and their seamless integration in our day to day lives, it is evident that the Silicon on Insulator concept has already laid down the foundation for a promising future.
Jim Pries, the national sales manager for Lapp Insulators, talked about the upcoming series:

The pores also make the gel almost as good an electrical insulator as air.
disc insulator with HW fitting/polypropline insulator, 11 KV pin insulator with pin/ polyproplyne insulator, 11 KV disc insulator with HW fitting/ polypropline insulator, LT pin insulator with pin, LT sakel insulator with strap, 33 KV pin
The bismuth and strontium layers act as insulators between the superconducting copper oxide sheets, creating conditions under which pairs of electrons can "tunnel" through the barriers separating superconducting layers.
Conductive and semi-conductive insulator materials, even a rubber and TPE compound, can be co-molded in a single operation, owing to the dual and independent injection units on-board these presses.
The results show that the aerogel consisting of 88 percent air conducts one-third as much heat as a typical polyurethane foam insulator.
