‘A very disturbing picture’: another retraction for controversial physicist

Physicist Ranga Dias from the University of Rochester in New York is at the center of a controversy surrounding his claims of discovering room-temperature superconductors. A paper by Dias has been retracted by Physical Review Letters (PRL) due to an investigation that found evidence of data fabrication. Dias had previously faced allegations of plagiarism and had another paper retracted by Nature. The retraction highlights the challenges in the field of room-temperature superconductivity, as Dias’ claims have been met with skepticism and doubts from the scientific community. The investigation into Dias’ work raises concerns about the validity of his findings and casts doubt on his credibility.
