Induced supercoductivity

    Is it possible to create/improve superconductivity (and/or increase Tc) by pumping in coherent phonons with proper frequency (kind of phonon laser)?

    Before trying to apply something to do another task, one must first (i) be able to show that that something is possible and (ii) show that that something has been accomplished.

    So have you read anything about "pumping coherent phonons" that satisfies both criteria?
