 Single-layer FeSe/Graphene is non superconducting above 2.2K;
 Tc increases with the number of layers in FeSe/Graphene films,
reaching 8K for 8 layers with a superconducting gap of 2.1 meV;

Q. Y. Wang et al., Chinese Phys. Lett. 29 (2012) 037402.
 Single-layer FeSe/SrTiO3 film shows a STS peak at ~20 meV,
corresponding to an estimated Tc~80 K if it is superconducting;
 Double-layer FeSe/SrTiO3 film is semiconducting.

 There are two phases present in single-layer FeSe/SrTiO3 film
with different electronic structure (N phase and S phase);
 By annealing in vacuum, N phase can transform into S phase;
 Indication of Tc~65 K observed.

in FeSe/SrTiO3 Films
S. Y. Tan et al., Nature Materials 12, 634 (2013).
 For two-layer or multiple layer FeSe/SrTiO3 films, it is reported
that SDW state is formed;
 The SDW temperature decreases with increasing number
of FeSe layers.
Substrate Strain-Dependent Electronic Structure
and Superconductivity of Single-layer FeSe Film
FeSeBR: SL-FeSe/Nb:BaTiO3/KTaO3 heterostructures, relaxed;
a=3.76 A
FeSeBU: SL-FeSe/Nb:BaTiO3/KTaO3 heterostructures, unrelaxed;
a=3.99 A
FeSeSX: SL FeSe/Nb:SrTiO3/KTaO3 heterostructures;
a=3.99 A
FeSeS: FeSe/Nb:SrTiO3 ;
a=3.906 A
R. Peng et al., Nature Communications 5 (2014) 5044.
 The lattice constant changes from 3.76 A to 3.99 A,
Tc shows little change near (70+_5)K;
 The superconductivity is not sensitive to strain of the substrate.
Replica Bands and Electron-Phonon Coupling in
Single-layer FeSe/SrTiO3 Film
J. J. Lee et al., arXiv: 1312.2633.
 Replica bands are observed with a separation of ~100 meV;
 It is proposed this is due to electron coupling with STO phonon.
Transport and Magnetic Measurements on
Single-Layer FeSe/SrTiO3 Films
W. H. Zhanget al., Chinese Physics Letters 31 (2014) 017401.
Both transport and magnetic measurements indicate single-layer
FeSe/SrTiO3 is superconducting although the Tc is not as high as
that from ARPES.
