Hopefully this can get peer review approval.

Wow.


  • A team of South Korean researchers report on a room-temperature superconductor in the pre-print server ArXiv.
  • The superconductor is based on a modified lead-apatite structure.
  • Previous claims of room-temperature superconductors have not held up to scientific scrutiny, so this work has a long research journey ahead.
Room-temperature superconductivity is important because it has the potential to revolutionize multiple aspects of science and technology. One of the most significant advantages of room-temperature superconductors is the unprecedented energy efficiency they offer. Traditional superconductors require extremely low temperatures to function, making their practical applications limited and energy-intensive. However, with room-temperature superconductors, power transmission and distribution systems experience minimal energy losses due to virtually zero electrical resistance.

Additionally, the advent of room-temperature superconductivity could pave the way for groundbreaking advancements in transportation, such as high-speed trains that can travel without using much energy. Moreover, superconducting materials could be utilized in energy storage devices, enabling highly efficient and compact solutions for grid-scale storage and portable electronics.



Here's the tech paper.

If they can actually do this, it could change the world.

This would have more applications than you could imagine. I am going to wait on the peer reviews though before I get excited.
