The highest critical temperature of superconductivity Tc has been achieved in cuprates: 133 K at ambient pressure and 164 K at high pressures. As the nature of superconductivity in these materials is still not disclosed, the prospects for a higher Tc are not clear. In contrast the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) theory gives a clear guide for achieving high Tc: it should be a favorable combination of high frequency phonons, strong coupling between electrons and phonons, and high density of…

S sulfur hydride is investigated, and it is argued that the phase responsible for high-Tc superconductivity in this system is likely to be H3S, formed from H2S by decomposition under pressure, which raises hope for the prospects for achieving room-temperature super conductivity in other hydrogen-based materials.

High-temperature superconductivity in sulfur hydride evidenced by alternating-current magnetic susceptibility
The superconductivity identification of sulfur hydride at pressure is reported, employing an in situ alternating-current magnetic susceptibility technique and determines the superconducting phase diagram, finding thatsuperconductivity suddenly appears at 117 GPa and Tc reaches 183 K at 149 GPa before decreasing monotonically with increasing pressure.
