  journal={arXiv: Superconductivity},
The search for room temperature superconductivity has accelerated dramatically in the last few years driven largely by theoretical predictions that first indicated alloying dense hydrogen with other elements could produce conventional phonon-mediated superconductivity at very high temperatures and at accessible pressures, and more recently, with the success of structure search methods that have identified specific candidates and pressure-temperature (P-T) conditions for synthesis. These… Expand

Conventional superconductivity at 203 kelvin at high pressures in the sulfur hydride system
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.
