2-D Superconductivity

2-D SC, Phase Diagram 2-D SC, Vortices Substances in 1 or 2 dimension were considered to be incapable of generating superconductive current because there is not enough connection between different particles to overcome thermal agitation. It was subsequently shown in the 1980s (by the 2016 Nobel Prize winners) that 2-D superconductivity (SC) is possible under certain conditions. The transition to such phase is recapped briefly in the followings.
