Discovery of new superconducting materials using materials informatics

Scientists have succeeded in discovering new materials that exhibit superconductivity under high pressures using materials informatics (MI) approaches (data science-based material search techniques). This study experimentally demonstrated that MI enables efficient exploration of new superconducting materials. MI approaches may be applicable to the development of various functional materials, including superconductors. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181025103335.htm
