High pressure structural change and superconductivity in jacutingaite

The result of our collaboration with the group of Prof. Yanpeng Qi at ShanghaiTech University has just been published in npj Quantum Materials. Our work reveals that Pt2HgSe3 (jacutingaite) transforms to a monoclinic structure (space group Pc), above 55 GPa and at the same time becomes a superconductor.
