Science Friday, a radio program carried by NPR stations across the country, interviewed Eva Zurek, professor of chemistry, about the quest to create room-temperature superconductors, including by squeezing materials between diamonds under enormous pressures. She discussed the science behind such efforts, as well as recent achievements in the field. As a theoretical chemist, she helps to estimate the properties of materials that are potential high-temperature superconductors.
