Here. It will be available for 90 days.

Why? The PDF is open-access. Can you not get it in China?

Almost all ISP in China and other Asia countries use filter lists at DNS level and sometimes even pure scientific or research sites get blacklisted for some time. Few years ago they even blacklisted Talk-polywell for more than one year before admitting it into white list and it's now more than 2 years that they blacklisted Google and all related services....
The way around is generally to use Open DNS or (better) a VPN, but not everyone has them, so when I stumble on some important paper like this i just put it on an unfiltered sharing service to allow anyone living in these areas to get an easy access to it so that they can easily spread it to local science groups.

Perovskites structures are finally starting to keep hold of their expectations.
If this will be succesfully replicated from other labs (once they officially publish the structure and way to obtain it) than it might be the first step to finally unlock commercial HTSC material.
Once that becomes reality we will see probably e new gold age. About time I would say.

Above 373? Really?
That is water's boiling point.

The paper has a lot of interesting details, is quite well detailed and the tests seems to be logic and no major (or illogical) flaw in the reported result. All seems right, so we just need to wait until they publish the formula and related process to make it and see if it will get replicated and proved true.
Should they fail to do so and start asking money instead..... well, we all know what that means.

Anyone heard from Prins?

Seems like time to Google stalk him.

I just looked at my facebook page that I have created when Facebook was in infancy and hardly used ever since, and today Johan Prins popped up as suggested contact.

https://www.facebook.com/johan.prins3

Looks like he frequently comments on physics on his facebook page, but does not seem to get a lot of shares or likes.

You should poke him, and see where he is at with his work. Tell him we missed his visits.

Johan responded:

We miss your visits at talk-polywell.com. Any chance you would be dropping by again?
There was even a discussion thread asking why you disappeared

Johan Prins accepted your request.
Johan Prins
As far as I remember polywell blocked me.


I don't think this is right but this is a question to MSimon: Is Johan Prins blocked?
Did we have anyone ever blocked?

I don't think that anyone was ever blocked here.
Is better if you post this into the Administration forum in a new thread as it might not get noticed here.
