High Temperature Cuprate-Like Superconductivity at Surfaces and Interfaces
Phillips, J. C.
The realization of high-transition-temperature superconductivity (HTSC) confined to nanometre-sized interfaces has been a long-standing goal because of potential applications and the opportunity to study quantum phenomena in reduced dimensions. Here we discuss HTSC at free surfaces, interfaces, and nanoscale cluster surfaces, and show that the percolative self-organized model of bulk HTSC also gives an excellent description of HTSC in quasi-two-dimensional contexts.
