The Future Circular Collider (FCC) collaboration submitted its Conceptual Design Report (CDR) for publication, a four-volume document that presents the different options for a large circular collider of the future. It showcases the great physics opportunities offered by machines of …

energyNew Evidence of Superconductivity at Near Room Temperature and High Pressure

No Comments
Researchers at the George Washington University have taken a major step toward reaching one of the most sought-after goals in physics: room temperature superconductivity. The key to this discovery was creation of a metallic, hydrogen-rich compound at very high pressures: …

physicsCalculations of Room Temperature Superconductors But Requiring High Pressure

No Comments
Calculations confirm the room-temperature superconductivity found by other authors, and show that it results from a strong e-ph interaction which is rather uniformly spread over electronic and vibrational states of both hydrogen and yttrium sublattices. Under high pressure there should …

computerSaving Half of the Clean Energy in the USA and the World

No Comments
Nuclear power provides half of the low-carbon clean energy in the United States. Providing $12-17 per megawatt hour in credits would preserve this clean energy. This would be the cheapest way to preserve most of the low carbon energy in …
