are there new materials from outside the world coming to make resistors?

Not that I am aware of. Do you have alien source that you are not telling the rest of us about?

How about resistors made from quasi-1-dimensional molecular chains using polaron charge transport?

Default nice fairly inexpensive resistors

I used the Takman REY metal film resistors in various positions throughout my Jolida JD-502 amp with good results. The sound is fairly extended with good information retrieval. I did however change the grid stop resistors to Riken RMG's and found them to be more organic and for some reason the sound stage is also deeper. Also the instruments are better defined. But from what I have read you can't use too many of them. Overall the Takman's are a good value and would like to try the REX version.

Default looking outside

Sy- One drawing in the acid doping decript looks like a Buckyball space rope resistor I hear NASA is holding in their Alien Tech files. Sounds bad I know.
