Pseudogap phenomenon explains superconducting temperature change

Cornell University researchers have discovered a rare "pseudogap" phenomenon that helps explain how the superconducting transition temperature can be greatly boosted in a single monolayer of iron selenide.

[Researchers used the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility, supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (grant ECCS 2025233).]
