    Er.. no it doesn't. The energy scale calculation is VERY rough. Just look at how the CuO planes are approximated.

    Again, when something this "far out" are on ArXiv, we need to show a bit of restraint in "advertising" such a thing. Let's wait and see if it gets published first. There have been way too many "red herrings" as far as high-Tc superconductors go.

    That's why I included the word "may" :smile:

    I'm skeptical even with the "may" part.
