Proximity-induced superconducting gap in the quantum spin Hall edge state of monolayer WTe$_2$

16 Jul 2019 Lüpke Felix Waters Dacen de la Barrera Sergio C. Widom Michael Mandrus David G. Yan Jiaqiang Feenstra Randall M. Hunt Benjamin M.

The quantum spin Hall (QSH) state was recently demonstrated in monolayers of the transition metal dichalcogenide 1T'-WTe$_2$ and is characterized by a band gap in the two-dimensional (2D) interior and helical one-dimensional (1D) edge states. Inducing superconductivity in the helical edge states would result in a 1D topological superconductor, a highly sought-after state of matter... (read more)
