Abstract:

A superconducting transition temperature, T sub c of 124. K has been observed in palladium implanted with copper ions and electrolytically charged with hydrogen at dry ice temperature. A step-wise warmup procedure between 77 K and 273 K produces considerable variations in T sub c. Annealing the copper implanted palladium before electrolysis does not change T sub c to a substantial degree.
