Two-fold symmetric superconductivity in few-layer NbSe2
Two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have been attracting significant interest due to a range of properties, such as layer-dependent inversion symmetry, valley-contrasted Berry…
The Challenge of Unconventional Superconductivity
During the past few decades, several new classes of superconductors have been discovered that do not appear to be related to traditional superconductor materials, and developing a rigorous theory for any of these classes of materials has been a difficult challenge.
Scanning tunnelling spectroscopy of superconductivity on surfaces of LiTi2O4(111) thin films
An unexpected small superconducting energy gap and a long coherence length on the surface of LiTi2O4(111) epitaxial thin films are reported and it is found that a pseudogap opening at the Fermi energy modifies the surface superconductivity.
Phenomenological theory of unconventional superconductivity
This article is a review of recent developments in the phenomenological description of unconventional superconductivity. Starting with the BCS theory of superconductivity with anisotropic Cooper…
