Atomic layers[edit]

Quote from 27 Jan 2011 version: "The particular realizations of this type of unconventional superconductor made of superstripes are the cuprate materials made of CuO2 layers intercalated by block layers, the magnesium diboride materials made of boron layers intercalated by Mg/Al/Sc layers and the oxypnictide materials made of FeAs layers intercalated by atomic or oxide layers". (a) As far as I know, there is no oxide of copper CuO2, (b) I am puzzled by the arsenides of iron [1]. Biscuittin (talk) 16:33, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

I have only read your comment above. There is no use comparing atomic layers in a solid with a bulk solid, i.e. the local stoichiometry/structure of a layer could be non-existent in the bulk. Materialscientist (talk) 01:37, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

The classical case of superstripes metamaterials, as defined in this page, remind me intercalated graphite: a superlattice made of stacks of honeycomb atomic carbon layers intercaled by different atomic layers playing the role of spacers. As stated by the first comment in this page the atomic carbon layers have been known to exist only in bulk graphite, before the discovery of graphene. After the discovery of graphene, it is well accepted by the scientific community that the single atomic layer of graphite, called graphene, actually exists.

Stripe Phase Demonstrated[edit]

The Stripe Phase has been demonstrated according to the last paragraph of the SuperSolids article. I imported most of the text from that article including references to announcement in March 2017 Nature Journal. Please check that it makes sense as I am not a physicist.
