In this project we used a novel strategy for an enlightened search for new superconducting materials. We used a broad range of synthesis methods together with highly sensitive and selective screening techniques. Materials synthesis was accomplished by natural, extraterrestrial, high pressuretemperature, phase spread alloys and conventional methods. The screening was mostly done using Magnetic Field Microwave Spectroscopy MFMMS. Use of this technique allowed us to quickly discard large amounts of non-superconducting materials and thus focusing the effort on the interesting materials. This provided a proven, rational methodology for the search for new superconductors.
