A ballistic strip of graphene (width $W⪢\text{length}$ $L$) connecting two normal metal contacts is known to have a minimum conductivity of $4{e}^{2}∕\ensuremath{\pi}h$ at the Dirac point of charge neutrality. We calculate what happens if one of the two contacts becomes superconducting. While the ballistic conductance away from the Dirac point is increased by Andreev reflection at the normal-superconductor (NS) interface, we find that the minimum conductivity stays the same. This is explained… 
Andreev reflection in ballistic normal metal/graphene/superconductor junctions
We report the study of ballistic transport in normal metal/graphene/superconductor junctions in edge-contact geometry. While in the normal state, we have observed Fabry-P\'erot resonances suggesting
Signatures of pseudo diffusive transport in ballistic suspended graphene superconductor junctions
We report transport measurements on short ballistic suspended graphene-Niobium Josephson weak links where we observe a strong gate dependence of the multiple Andreev reflection associated
Subgap states in two-dimensional spectroscopy of graphene-based superconducting hybrid junctions
Several recent works have predicted that unconventional and topological superconductivity can arise in graphene, either intrinsically or by proximity effect. Then, the analysis of the spectroscopic
Signatures of evanescent transport in ballistic suspended graphene-superconductor junctions
Transport measurements on ballistic suspended graphene-Niobium Josephson weak links demonstrate a transition from ballistic to pseudo-diffusive like evanescent transport below a carrier density of ~1010 cm−2, in qualitative agreement with the long standing theoretical prediction for the emergence of evanescence transport mediated pseudo-Diffusive transport in graphene.

The electron transport through a graphene nanoribbon-superconductor junction is studied using the tight-binding model and the non-equilibrium Green's function method and the finite bias case, in which the Andreev reflection coefficient and normal tunneling coefficient are studied.
Formation of Interface Bound States on a Graphene-Superconductor Junction in the Presence of Charge Inhomogeneities
Interface bound states have been theoretically predicted to appear at isolated graphene-superconductor junctions. These states are formed at the interface due to the interplay between virtual Andreev
Signature of pseudodiffusive transport in mesoscopic topological insulators
One of the unique features of Dirac Fermions is pseudo-diffusive transport by evanescent modes at low Fermi energies when the disorder is low. At higher Fermi energies i.e. carrier densities, the
