Not content with getting copper oxide samples to superconduct at room temperature, Dr Ahmet Erbil, a professor at Georgia Institute of Technology plans today to deliver a paper in at the Fall Meeting of the Materials Research Society in Boston in which he describes experiments that led to observation of superconductivity at temperatures up to 227oC, implying room temperature superconductivity. Key point about Dr Erbil’s experiments – with several different oxide compositions, is that they were found to be repeatable. Dr Erbil reports that his measurements of current-voltage characteristics produced a DC Josephson Effect, proving existence of superconductivity. Dr Erbil joined Georgia Tech from IBM Corp’s Thomas J Watson Research Center in 1985.
