Peculiar properties of -chain-based superconductors
Abstract (A = K, Rb, Cs) are the unique Cr-based ambient-pressure superconductors discovered in 2015. The new superconducting family are structurally characterised by quasi one-dimensional (Q1D) [()
Progress in superconductivity
One of the subtlest phenomena in physics has been subjected to more than a century of experimental and theoretical investigations.One of the subtlest phenomena in physics has been subjected to more
Towards an understanding of hole superconductivity
From the very beginning K. Alex M\"uller emphasized that the materials he and George Bednorz discovered in 1986 were $hole$ superconductors. Here I would like to share with him and others what I
μSR Studies of Cuprate Superconductors
A partial review of magnetic and superconducting properties of hole-doped cuprates determined by μSR is given. Much was learned about these materials from μSR experiments performed in the early years
Why only hole conductors can be superconductors
The conventional theory of superconductivity says that charge carriers in a metal that becomes superconducting can be either electrons or holes. I argue that this is incorrect. In order to satisfy
Classifying Induced Superconductivity in Atomically Thin Dirac-Cone Materials
Recently, Kayyalha et al. (Phys. Rev. Lett., 2019, 122, 047003) reported on the anomalous enhancement of the self-field critical currents (Ic (sf, T)) at low temperatures in
Uranium-based superconducting materials


An outline is given of the superconducting properties of the transition metals (those having unfilled d shells and filled or empty f shells), using as examples the alloys Os--Ir, Os-Ru, Nb-Fe,
