New model for superconductivity

In summary, there is a new theory on superconductivity that proposes a standing wave model for understanding and designing superconductors. However, the theory has not been published and has received no citations, leading some to believe it may not hold much validity. Additionally, there is another paper discussing the premise of the theory, but it also lacks citations and has not been published. As a result, many in the community have dismissed the theory without further investigation.

A general question for those who may have background in superconductivity. Curious to know if the following theory has any legs

Unpublished and zero cites? Not promising.

It's title makes me very intrigued as it's counterintuitive. Is this an idea that is even realizable?

That's a different paper.

The premise of the new theory is described in the published paper, where it is described that a 'standing wave model provides a new direction for the understanding of superconductivity and for the design of new superconductors.' No citations to it though, so not sure if there's any validity.

The community has already passed judgment on it by a lack of citations of citations of either paper and the lack of publication of one of the two. It is not worth my time to see if there are any nuggets of gold in them.
