“It has long been postulated that, under the right conditions, graphene should undergo a superconducting transition, but can’t,” said one of the researchers, Jason Robinson from the University of Cambridge in the UK.
“Placing graphene on a metal can dramatically alter the properties so it is technically no longer behaving as we would expect,” said one of the team, Angelo di Bernardo.
“What we saw in the graphene was, in other words, a very different type of superconductivity than in PCCO,” said Robinson.
“If p-wave superconductivity is indeed being created in graphene, graphene could be used as a scaffold for the creation and exploration of a whole new spectrum of superconducting devices for fundamental and applied research areas,” said Robinson.
