After obtaining his PhD in the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), Ion Errea worked for two years in the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) in Paris, France, as a postdoctoral fellow. The theoretical study of materials from first-principles calculations is his main line of research. He currently continues developing his research at the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC).

Achieving room temperature superconductivity is among the most pursued but elusive goals of scientists. A paper uploaded to the arXiv in December 2014 claims to have observed superconductivity as high as 190 K in hydrogen sulfide at high pressure, breaking all the records thus far. If this observation is confirmed, cuprates will be knocked from […]
