The Quest for Superconductivity in CsBi-GIC's


Shortly after the announcement of the discovery of superconductivity in the MBi-GIC's, an effort was undertaken at MIT to reproduce the results reported by the University of Nancy group. As described in Section gif , the samples used in the MIT experiments were prepared using conditions close to those used in Nancy. The x-ray diffraction patterns, TEM micrographs, and sample colors were found to be similar to those previously reported [see Chapter gif ]. (Alison Chaiken)
