Pressure effect on superconductivity in selenide superconductors


Pressure Effect on Superconductivity in Selenide Superconductors



Enhancement of superconductivity by pressure-driven competition in electronic order

Finding a way to achieve higher transition temperatureTc of a superconductor than it already has for the energy application is a grand challenge. Currently, copper oxides remain the superconducting materials having highest Tc’s both at ambient condition and under pressure.
