Novel Structure and Properties of Hydrogen-dominated Materials at High Pressures
Hydrogen-dominated materials can be metallized at much lower pressures due to "chemical pre-compression". Because these materials are dominated by hydrogen elements, high temperature superconductivity can be found after metallization. Therefore, they are expected to become a new member of superconductor family: hydrogen-based superconductor. Very recently, the discovery of superconductivity at 203 K (-70o) in a sulfur hydride compound at high pressure creates a new superconducting record. Besides, hydrogen-dominated materials also hold promise as hydrogen storage materials in the future.
In this session, we devote to review and exchange ideas on the latest research progress in hydrogen-dominated materials including, but not limited to, the design/synthesis of new hydrogen-dominated materials, novel structures with outstanding properties, high temperature superconductivity and hydrogen storage.
