Abstract


  • The breakthrough discovery of superconductivity in the Fe-based new superconductors has brought a great hope of understanding the underlying mechanisms for high Tc superconductivity and of finding new superconductors with even higher Tc. This project aims to bring together world pioneers in this field to form a strong team that will explore novel superconducting materials and elucidate the origins of superconductivity. The significance and outcomes of this project are expected to introduce new physics and materials, leading to a better understanding of the superconductivity phenomenon and the discovery of fascinating new physical phenomena for superior electronic devices.
