RECENTLY, superconductivity at >130 K was reported1,2 in multiphase samples of the compound system HgBa2Can−1CunO2n+2+δ (Hg-12(n−l)n) with n = 1, 2, 3,.... Single-phase Hg-1223 was subsequently synthesized and found to be superconducting at a record temperature of 135 K (ref. 3). It remains to be seen if a much higher transition temperature (Tc) than 135K can be achieved in this compound system. The application of pressure generally increases the Tc of underdoped layered cuprates, with a… Expand
