n a study published in Advanced Science, researchers led by Prof. Zhong Guohua from the Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have made a prediction regarding superconductivity above 100 K within carbon-cage networks.

By utilizing first-principles calculations, they crafted carbides with the structural characteristics of carbon-cage networks, achieving robust electron-phonon coupling and surpassing the superconducting transition temperatures of conventional carbides like diamond, graphene, carbon nanotubes, and fullerene.
