Observation of zero resistance above 100 K in Pb₁₀₋ₓCuₓ(PO₄)₆O

In this paper, the authors discuss the pursuit of room-temperature superconductivity, which has long been a goal in the fields of solid-state physics and materials science. They highlight the potential revolutionary impact of achieving this, as it could lead to significant changes in energy transmission and storage. The authors turn their attention to recent research on the material Pb$_{10-x}$Cu$_x$(PO$_4$)$_6$O, which has shown signs of room-temperature superconductivity under atmospheric pressure. They conducted their own experiment using solid-phase synthesis and confirmed the material’s structural consistency through x-ray diffraction. Notably, they observed zero resistance above 100$^circ$ K under ambient pressure, providing important evidence for superconductivity. This discovery suggests that Pb$_{10-x}$Cu$_x$(PO$_4$)$_6$O could be a potential candidate for high-temperature superconductors.
