Description

The discovery of “almost room temperature” superconductivity in a high-pressure hydride, LaH10, [1] is a spectactular demonstration of a new approach to search for superconductors, which combines high pressures, computational methods for crystal structure prediction and superconductivity. [2]

In my talk, I will review the current theoretical understanding of the field of superconductivity in high-pressure hydrides and propose possible strategies to improve the superconducting properties. [3]
