The electric-field-induced superconducting properties of MoS2 are investigated by means of magneto-transport measurements, uncovering evidence of spin–momentum locking. Symmetry-breaking has been known to play a key role in non-centrosymmetric superconductors with strong spin–orbit interactions (SOIs; refs 1,2,3,4,5,6). The studies, however, have been so far mainly focused on a particular type of SOI, known as the Rashba SOI (ref. 7), whereby the electron spin is locked to its momentum at a… Expand
