Hole Superconductivity

Phys.Lett. A134, 451 (1989)

We argue that a fundamental mechanism for superconductivity arises from the interaction of a hole with the outer electrons in atoms with nearly filled shells. This is the origin of high Tc superconductivity in oxides. This picture also provides an explanation for general trends in Tc and correlations with Hall coefficient observed in nature, and suggests where the highest Tc's will be found.
