We describe the formation of superconducting states in graphene in the presence of pseudo-Landau-levels induced by strain, when time reversal symmetry is preserved. We show that superconductivity in strained graphene is quantum critical when the pseudo-Landau-levels are completely filled, whereas at partial fillings superconductivity survives at weak coupling. In the weak coupling limit, the critical temperature scales linearly with the coupling strength and shows a sequence of quantum critical… 
Pseudo-Landau levels of Bogoliubov quasiparticles in strained nodal superconductors
Motivated by theory and experiments on strain induced pseudo-Landau levels (LLs) of Dirac fermions in graphene and topological materials, we consider its extension for Bogoliubov quasiparticles (QPs)
Superconducting states and Majorana modes in transition-metal dichalcogenides under inhomogeneous strain
We study the effect of inhomogeneous strain on transition-metal dichalcogenides with a large intrinsic gap in their spectrum. It is found that, by tuning the chemical potential, superconductivity can
Landau levels from neutral Bogoliubov particles in two-dimensional nodal superconductors under strain and doping gradients
Motivated by recent work on strain-induced pseudomagnetic fields in Dirac and Weyl semimetals, we analyze the possibility of analogous fields in two-dimensional nodal superconductors. We consider the
Superfluid weight and Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless transition temperature of strained graphene
Abstract We obtain the superfluid weight and Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless (BKT) transition temperature for highly unconventional superconducting states with the coexistence of chiral d-wave
Inhomogeneous superconductivity in the presence of time-reversal symmetry
We propose a new type of non-uniform condensate state in the presence of time-reversal symmetry. The underlying platform of this state is a corrugated honeycomb lattice which exhibits an
Determination of gap solution and critical temperature in doped graphene superconductivity
It is shown that the gap solution and critical transition temperature are significantly enhanced by doping in a recently developed BCS formalism for graphene superconductivity in such a way that
Superfluidity in topologically nontrivial flat bands
The results establish that a topologically nontrivial flat band is a promising concept for increasing the critical temperature of the superconducting transition and provides Ds for the time-reversal invariant attractive Harper–Hubbard model that can be experimentally tested in ultracold gases.
Exotic superconductivity with enhanced energy scales in materials with three band crossings
Three band crossings can arise in three dimensional quantum materials with certain space group symmetries. The low energy Hamiltonian supports spin one fermions and a flat band. We study the pairing
Landau quantization of Dirac fermions in graphene and its multilayer
When electrons are confined in a two dimensional (2D) system, typical quantum mechanical phenomena such as Landau quantization can be detected. Graphene systems, including the single atomic layer and
Effective magnetic field induced by inhomogeneous Fermi velocity in strained honeycomb structures
In addition to the known pseudomagnetic field, nonuniform strains independently induce a position-dependent Fermi velocity (PDFV) in graphene. Here we demonstrate that, due to the presence of a PDFV,


Introduction to Superconductivity
We have seen how the conductivity of a metal is limited by collisions, which determine the electron mean free path. After a collision, an electron completely loses all memory of its quantum state as
