Superconductivity induced by proximity effect is particularly interesting in graphene.
Strong light-matter interactions in microcavities have been long known to provide means to alter optical and nonlinear properties of the coupled system. As a result of this interaction, one typically observes the emergence of new polaritonic eigenstates of the coupled system.
The narrow-band semiconductor PbTe superconducts with a Tc an order of magnitude greater than comparable low-density metals, but only when it is doped with valence-skipping elements.
