Mechanism of high-temp. superconductors

  1. Jul 22, 2012 #1
    My prof. asked: "What is the mechanism that causes certain materials to exhibit superconductivity at temperatures much higher than around 25 kelvin?"
    then until now it remain a question to me?.. so anyone have an idea? thank you.

    This is still an open question, so why should your prof ask if he ignores the answer? The best answer is "not BCS".
