A comment on percolation and signatures of superconductivity in Au/Ag nanostructures

  title={A comment on percolation and signatures of superconductivity in Au/Ag nanostructures},
  author={David Pekker and Jeremy Levy},
  journal={arXiv: Superconductivity},
In this comment we point out that the experimental evidence for superconductivity presented by Thapa and Pandey in arXiv:1807.08572 is also consistent with a percolation transition. We propose simple follow-up experiments which would help to eliminate percolation as a possible explanation for the observed data.
