Low Pressure, High Stakes: UNLV Physicists Make Major Gains in Race for Room-Temperature Superconductivity

Newly published research builds on team’s landmark 2020 discovery of a room-temperature superconductor by replicating results with even greater efficiency. 

A team of physicists from UNLV's Nevada Extreme Conditions Lab (NEXCL) used a diamond anvil cell, a research device similar to the one pictured, in their research to lower the pressure needed to observe a material capable of room-temperature superconductivity. (Image courtesy of NEXCL)
