Quantum Simulation Analysis Claims that If We Made High-symmetry Phase LK99 It Would Be Ambient Pressure Room Temperature Superconductors

Computational physicists have a new paper that says if we made better LK99 samples with mostly high-symmetry phase then it would make the claimed room-temperature superconductors at ambient pressure. All the experimental attempts to replicate LK99 room temperature superconductors have not worked. However, the attempts at replication have been for bulk samples of copper doped …

A Superconductivity Theory To Explain Reported LK99 Assuming Reports Were Correct

Chinese researchers have proposed a theory for understanding the LK99 superconductor. This paper assumes the south Korean LK99 claims are correct for critical temperature and critical current. The conventional superconducting mechanisms and theories (BCS and BR-BCS) used to understand other superconductors would not explain LK99. LK99 has the apparent contradiction between an extremely high critical …

Another Computational Analysis Paper Says LK99 Can Be a Superconductor and Modification Will Make It Better

Computational theorists believe that the LK99 structure is promising and have discovered ways to improve LK99’s structure. The researchers think it is essential to gain a deeper understanding of the relationships between the LK-99 structure and properties, which could further open up new avenues for even high-temperature superconductivity (HTS). LK-99 was reported to have Tc …

A New Hyun-Tak Kim LK99 Superconducting Paper Will Published in About 3-5 Weeks

Hyun Tak Kim and other members of the original korean LK99 room temperature superconducting team should have an American Institute of Physics Materials journal paper published in about 3 to 5 weeks. They submitted a version and have been asked to make revisions. The key information that I would like to see is verified or …

Original Korean LK99 Superconducting Researcher Kwon Will Publish New Papers Showing Conclusive Room Temperature Superconducting Evidence

Professor Young-Wan Kwon is one of the original Korean LK99 research team. A team from Korea University led by Lee Sukbae (이석배) and Kim Ji-Hoon (김지훈) began studying this material as a potential superconductor starting in 1999.  In July 2023, they published preprints claiming that it acts as a room-temperature superconductor at temperatures of up …
