icarus, Points i), ii), iii) - agreed. iv) To date, no one else is known to have repeated the experiments of Prins regarding room temp. SC. Agreed there are no published results. However I believe Johan is genuine with his story of the lab that reproduced his results and then clammed up. Actually, I...

And the theory can be found in detail on my website under the extract Model: Superconduction. And in that abstract I apply it to published results which cannot be modelled by other theories on superconduction like BCS. Do you mean these? http://www.cathodixx.com/pdfs/model.pdf http://www.cathodixx....

Dr. Prinz should NOT be making up his own definition for superconductivity and certainly he does not need to do this "first" in order to supply Dave with what he asked for. If he honestly cannot give Dave what he asked for in 3 paragraphs, without correcting people's definitions for what ...

Why are we seeing the term "phase" here? It's not a phase, it'a a material and like all materials it exists in some specific phase. Without defining the phase, the point of using the term is lost on me. Would I be correct in assuming you are referring to generic phases Solid/Liquid/Gas wh...

If in those three paragraphs you tell everyone their definition for superconductivity is wrong, their physics is wrong, and you alone are right, NO ONE IN THIER RIGHT MIND IS EVEN GOING TO OPEN THE LINK TO YOUR WORK. I would strongly agree with GIThruster there. It the difference between TELLING pe...

but a phase is not a thing--it is a state of a thing, and so technically, without stating the thing or implying somewhere in the context, you cannot talk about a phase of a thing without the thing itself. I only half-follow that, so perhaps my response won't quite align. I would say the previous re...

It is exactly for this reason why a superconductor has a maximum current when increasing the applied electric field. Could expand on this a bit. If the electric field is zero within the superconductor, how do you talk about increasing the "applied" electric field. Where is it applied to? ...

My second trouble is that this definition is focused very sharply on the e-field inside the SC--that the field is "cancelled". That seems an odd perspective as well. The following on just occured to me in response, but my niave layman's response is that we observe superconductors excludin...

My attitude on my personal IP? I give all away. There are two ways to keep people from stealing your ideas: keep them secret. Give them away. I prefer the second method. Ideas are a dime a bushel basket full and cheaper by the bale. If I gain notice from one of my ideas I can make money on the next...
