A team of researchers claims to have created the first materials that conduct electricity perfectly at room temperature and ambient pressure, but many physicists are highly sceptical.

Superconductors are materials through which electricity can move without encountering any resistance, and so would significantly cut down the energy costs of electronics. But for over a century, researchers have been unable to make them work except under extreme conditions like very low temperatures and remarkably high pressures.

If their claims hold up to scientific scrutiny, this new work would be truly extraordinary, so the burden of proof for the research team is equally exceptional. The news material the team discovered was call "LK-99".

In response to the doubts, physics professor Hyun-Tak Kim at the College of William & Mary in Virginia said to National Business Daily (NBD) that he will support anyone trying to replicate his team's work. "Maybe it will be replicated within one month, because I disclosed the fabrication method and my members shall have guided the fabrication methods if there are questions."

"Moreover, as you know, If researchers have some questions, they doubts our researches. So, I selected open of fabrication technology. If other groups make the samples, they will be competed. Nevertheless, we would like to encourage their's sucess. We would like to contribute to advancement of humanity." Hyun-Tak Kim added

Some found major inconsistencies from the two papers posted on arXiv, others say the two papers have fundamental flaws (e.x. the samples which triggered the Meissner effect were not because its superconductivity)? 

Hyun-Tak Kim explained to NBD that he and the team found an error in the manuscript (arXiv: 2307.12037) in which an multiplying factor in the merging process of two data to one figure unintentionally dropped. One data is correct, the other is incorrect. "This made a mistake. So, the data was separated. The corrected version was uploaded again. Tuesday, it will appear."
