I have read the abstract quickly, and will read the paper later. This model is in certain aspects nearly identical to mine. The bound states are essential to explain superconduction: i.e that "electrons' are trapped within three-dimensional wells. But these states lie below the Fermi-level. Never above. If they are trapped electrons. Trapped holes obviously lie above the Fermi-level.scalziand wrote:Johan, I wonder what's your take on this paper, as from what I gather, it seems to disprove Cooper pairs in cuprate superconductors.
These authors realise that the binding energy of the trapped localised electrons determine the critical temperature, but they do not realise that it is not just the binding energy but also the spacing bwtween these localised states. If it were only the binding energy we would have had superconduction above room temperature decades ago.
I am glad that they also derived that the factor 2 in Josephson tunnelling is not caused by a double-charge. This of course totally excludes Cooper pairs. I have had quite a hard time on this very issue from main stream scientists. They of course realise that as soon as they agree with this, most, if not all the models on superconduction turn into dust.
According to my insight, these authors are on the right track.
