AbstractRecent progresses in the growth and fabrication techniques for preparing crystalline two-dimensional (2D) superconductors have stimulated intense interest in the studies of the electronic properties of these systems. Here we investigate the superconducting transport properties based on chemical vapor deposition-grown thin NbC crystals consisting of network structures. The 2D character of the superconductivity in individual NbC crystals is revealed by examining the angular dependence of magnetotransport measurements. At low temperatures, the samples show nonmonotonic double-step superconducting transitions as a function of temperature and magnetic field. We demonstrate that the observed transport characteristics can be understood in terms of coupled Josephson junctions forming between isolated NbC crystals, including the effects of Josephson and quasiparticle tunneling. In particular, detailed analysis of the magnetic field-driven transition suggests the existence of quantum flux-creep regime at low temperatures and small magnetic fields in such thin NbC superconducting crystals. Our work underlines the importance of the morphology on the transport properties of 2D superconducting crystals, providing a comprehensive understanding of crystalline 2D superconductors.
