Scientists Discover Room Temperature Silicon Superconductor

The key to the room temperature superconductor, long thought to be a virtually unobtainable holy grail of electronics, was pressure. The new material substitutes super cooling for super pressure, which in some materials, can have equally powerful effects inducing superconductivity. Researchers claim that the new material needs no cooling and could be used to create room temperature superconducting wires. Professor John Tse of the University of Saskatchewan remarked, “If you put hydrogen compounds under enough pressure, you can get superconductivity. These new superconductors can be operated at higher temperatures, perhaps without a refrigerant.”
