Greetings to G. Volovik on his anniversary at JETP Letters website http://jetpletters.ru/en/personalia.shtml
Our congratulations to Alexei Alexandrovich Starobinsky on being awarded the Isaac Pomeranchuk Prize 2021 for his research in the field of gravitation and cosmology, including the development of the theory of the inflationary stage in the early Universe.
The first Chez Pierre Seminar for the Spring 2021 semester will be held on Monday, February 22, 2021 at 12:00pm noon EST.
The seminar will be broadcast via password protected Zoom link. Please see the details below.
Igor Mazin – George Mason University
“Conventional high temperature superconductivity: from A15 to MgB2 to superhydrates”
I will review in a rather popular-science way, mostly for the benefits of the younger generation, the history of the half-century long quest for the room-temperature superconductivity, concentrating on the conventional electron-phonon mechanism. I will outline several stages, characterized by different paradigms, which can be tagged in a Popperian way thus:
(1) A-15 and the concept of an upper bound on Tc
(2) V.L. Ginzburg and the concept of a negative dielectric function
(3) MgB2 and the concept of doped covalent bonds
(4) H3S and the concept of MgB2 on steroids
(5) superhydrates and the concept of artificially stabilized metal hydrogen
I am dedicating this talk to G.M. Eliashberg on the occasion of his 90th birthday.
