Au and Ag are known to be metallic and none of them have shown independently superconductivity. Here we show superconductivity in Ag implanted Au thin films. Ag implanted Au films of different thicknesses have been studied using four probe resistance versus temperature measurements. We have also measured the pristine samples (i.e. without any implantation) to compare the transport properties. The superconducting transition occurs around ~2 K (TC) for Ag implanted 20 nm Au film (the lowest… Expand

Superconductivity above 100 K in single-layer FeSe films on doped SrTiO3.
TLDR
FeSe/STO is confirmed as an ideal material for studying high-Tc superconductivity by means of in situ four-point probe electrical transport measurements, and rekindle the long-standing idea that electron pairing at interfaces between two different materials can be tailored to achieve high-temperaturesuperconductivity.

Superconductivity in the amorphous phase of topological insulator Bi x Sb100–x alloys
In this work we investigated the electrical properties of rapidly quenched amorphous Bi x Sb alloys in the temperature range of 1.2 K to 345 K. The resistance reveals that for a broad range ofExpand
Quantum Griffiths singularity of superconductor-metal transition in Ga thin films
TLDR
The transport properties of atomically thin gallium films are measured and it is found that the films undergo superconductor-metal transitions with increasing magnetic field, which is consistent with the Griffiths singularity behavior. Expand
Conventional superconductivity at 190 K at high pressures
The highest critical temperature of superconductivity Tc has been achieved in cuprates: 133 K at ambient pressure and 164 K at high pressures. As the nature of superconductivity in these materials isExpand
Amorphous metals and their superconductivity
Abstract Quite a number of metals and alloys can be forced into the amorphous state by quenching. In particular, condensation onto a substrate cooled to He-temperature is very effective. TheExpand

A single atomic slice of α-tin—stanene—has been predicted to host the quantum spin Hall effect at room temperature, offering an ideal platform to study low-dimensional and topological physics.Expand
Possible light-induced superconductivity in K3C60 at high temperature
TLDR
By exciting metallic K3C60 with mid-infrared optical pulses, a large increase in carrier mobility is induced, accompanied by the opening of a gap in the optical conductivity, which is observed at equilibrium when cooling metallic K 3C60 below Tc (20 kelvin). Expand

Abstract AuGa2 becomes superconducting at 1.12°K. The superconducting critical temperature rises rapidly with small additions of Pd. For the composition corresponding to Au0.95Pd0.05Ga2, Tc = 1.79°KExpand
Electric-field-induced superconductivity in electrochemically etched ultrathin FeSe films on SrTiO 3 and MgO
Electric-field-induced superconductivity in samples of ultrathin FeSe grown on SrTiO3 and MgO substrates shows that the superconductivity is not an interfacial effect but is rather related to aExpand
Conventional superconductivity at 203 kelvin at high pressures in the sulfur hydride system
TLDR
S sulfur hydride is investigated, and it is argued that the phase responsible for high-Tc superconductivity in this system is likely to be H3S, formed from H2S by decomposition under pressure, which raises hope for the prospects for achieving room-temperature super conductivity in other hydrogen-based materials.
