Superconducting and topological states are two most intriguing quantum phenomena in solid materials. The entanglement of these two states, the topological superconducting state, will give rise to even more exotic quantum phenomena. While many materials are found to be either a superconductor or a topological insulator, it is very rare that both states exist in one material. Here, we demonstrate by first-principles theory as well as scanning tunnelling spectroscopy and angle-resolved… 
A weak topological insulator state in quasi-one-dimensional superconductor TaSe$_3$
A well-established way to find novel Majorana particles in a solid-state system is to have superconductivity arising from the topological electronic structure. To this end, the heterostructure

TLDR
High-resolution angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy results reveal an unexpected characteristic of the single-unit-cell FeSe/SrTiO3 system: shake-off bands suggesting the presence of bosonic modes, most probably oxygen optical phonons in SrTiO2, which couple to the FeSe electrons with only a small momentum transfer.
