Abstract

We here report the result of in situ magnetization measurements of electrochemical cells at low temperatures. Upon applying voltages between the electrodes of the electrochemical cells, we observed shielding diamagnetic signals from several materials, indicating superconducting transitions. The superconducting states can be induced both electrochemically and electrostatically with appropriate combination of counter electrode materials and electrolytes. The present technique may become a powerful method for searching novel superconductors.
