cryoresistive transmission line

[¦krī·ō·ri′zis·tiv tranz′mish·ən ‚līn]
(electricity)
An electric power transmission line whose conducting cables are cooled to the temperature of liquid nitrogen, 77 K (-196°C), resulting in a reduction of the resistance of the conductor by a factor of approximately 10, leading to increased transmission capacity.
