Proper breeding ground for germanene

Previous attempts to grow germanene show that these attractive properties seem to vanish when it is grown on a metal surface: a good conductor of current. To prevent this, scientists chose the semiconductor MoS2 as the substrate material.

Coexistence of superconductivity and charge density waves observed

Physicists studied an artificial structure composed of alternating layers of ferromagnetic and superconducting materials. Charge density waves induced by the interfaces were found to extend deeply into the superconducting regions, indicating new ways to manipulate superconductivity.
