Towards Room Temperature Superconductivity: SUPERHYDRIDES and MORE

“On the basis of general theoretical considerations, we believe at present that the most reasonable estimate is Tc≤300 K; this estimate being, of course, for materials and systems under more or less normal conditions equilibrium or quasi-equilibrium metallic systems in the absence of pressure or under relatively low pressures, etc Furthermore, for the present state of the problem of high-temperature superconductivity, the most sound and fruitful approach will be one that is not pre-conceived, in which attempts are made to move forward in the most diverse directions.”

—Vitaly Ginzburg, 2003 Nobel Lecture

Chapman University is honored to host the 2nd Annual International Workshop, Towards Room Temperature Superconductivity: SUPERHYDRIDES and MORE, arranged to assemble in Orange, California from May 8—9, 2017.

The widespread enthusiasm overflowing from the success of last May’s workshop behooves us to band together again next year. To help foster the spirit of progress produced in Rome, we’re preparing another workshop for a global array of members of the scientific community at Chapman campus for the next installment of in-depth discourse. Cooperative contributions from all scientific fields in the search for superconductivity at room temperature (and at any possible pressure) are not only encouraged, but are essential for future discoveries.

To commemorate the centennial of Professor Vitaly Ginzburg, the Institute for Quantum Studies dedicates our colloquium in recognition of his work, and influence as a leading proponent in high temperature superconductivity.

We plan to preserve the tradition of diverse participation and dissemination by accommodating attendees with free admission. However, to maintain safety and security for all guests, registration is mandatory and access will be restricted only to registered participants.
Guests visiting from certain participating countries may be eligible to visit without a visa by using a visa waiver. Find out more by clicking on this link.

Excited to see you all very soon in sunny, southern California!
