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 …
