Plasmonic colours can be used to colour large surfaces, can be mass-produced and dynamically reconfigured, and can provide sub-diffraction resolution. In this Review, the basic properties of plasmonic colours, different platforms supporting them and recent developments in the field are discussed.

    Highly crystalline 2D superconductors can exhibit very low sheet resistances and unusual physical properties, such as a quantum metallic state, a quantum Griffiths phase and superconductivity robust against in-plane magnetic fields. The origins of these phenomena and the materials in which they are observed are reviewed.
