The possibility of p-wave pairing in superconductors has been proposed more than five decades ago, but has not yet been convincingly demonstrated. One difficulty is that some p-wave states are thermodynamically indistinguishable from s-wave, while others are very similar to d-wave states. Here we studied the self-field critical current of NdFeAs(O,F) thin films in order to extract absolute values of the London penetration depth, the superconducting energy gap, and the relative jump in specific… Expand
Classifying superconductivity in Moiré graphene superlattices
Extracted superconducting parameters show that only s -wave and a specific kind of p -wave symmetries are likely to be dominant in bilayer graphene Moiré superlattices, and more experimental data is required to distinguish between the s - and remaining p - waves as well as the suspected two-band superconductivity in these 2D superlATTices.

p-wave triggered superconductivity in single-layer graphene on an electron-doped oxide superconductor
Evidence is shown for a p-wave triggered superconducting density of states in single-layer graphene by placing SLG on an electron-doped (non-chiral) d-wave superconductor and performing local scanning tunnelling microscopy and spectroscopy. Expand

Superconductivity above 100 K in single-layer FeSe films on doped SrTiO3.
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.

Vertical Line Nodes in the Superconducting Gap Structure of Sr2RuO4
There is strong experimental evidence that the superconductor Sr2RuO4 has a chiral p-wave order parameter. This symmetry does not require that the associated gap has nodes, yet specific heat,Expand
Chiral superconductors.
The current theory and experimental results on chiral superconductors are discussed, focusing on two of the best-studied systems, Sr2RuO4, which is thought to be a chiral triplet p-wave superconductor, and UPt3, which has two low-temperature superconducting phases (in zero magnetic field), the lower of which is believed to be chiral doublet f-wave.
