Superconducting properties achieved by applying pressure of more than 10,000 atmospheres on a bilayer graphene sample

Scientists at Columbia University have found a new way to induce superconductivity in twisted bilayer graphene. Fine-tuning adjacent layers of graphene by applying pressure helps turns this two-dim...
