The discovery of superconductivity in MgB2 and B-doped diamond has stimulated the search for new superconducting materials in similar systems containing light elements. In the framework of BCS theory, high frequency phonons induced in a network of light elements can yield a higher superconducting transition temperature (Tc). It shows that light element superconductors provide one of the most promising paths to a room-temperature superconductor taking account of the relationship electronic state and bonding state.
