With cuprate luggage to room-temperature superconductivity
On 4 October, 2007, the scientific session of the Division of
Physical Sciences of the Russian Academy of Sciences on
room-temperature superconductivity was held at the conference hall of the Lebedev Physics Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences. The following reports were made at this session:
1. Maksimov E G (Lebedev Physics Institute, Russian
Academy of Sciences, Moscow). “Room-temperature superconductivity: myth or reality?”;
2. Božović I (Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA).
“Experiments with atomically smooth thin films of cuprate
superconductors: strong electron-phonon coupling and other surprises”;
3. Antipov E V, Abakumov A M (Moscow State University, Chemical Department, Moscow). “Structural design
of superconductors based on complex copper oxides”;
4. Kopaev Yu V, Belyavskii V I, Kapaev V V (Lebedev Physics Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow). “With cuprate luggage to room-temperature superconductivity.”
