Abstract: E18.00001 : Ab-initio design of new high-Tc room-pressure conventional superconductors*
8:00 AM–8:36 AM
After room temperature superconductivity was achieved in high-pressure C-S hydride,the next challenge is to identify new strategies to achieve high-tc superconductivity at room pressure.
In this talk, I will propose several strategies, based on the conventional (electron-phonon) mechanism: doping of complex hydrides, new covalent metallic structures of boron and carbon, optimization of binary hydrides.
