Graphite intercalation compounds (GIC's) are metal-semimetal superlattices which exhibit crystalline order, and have atomically perfect interfaces between the layers of the constituent species. From the standpoint of superconductivity, the KHg-GIC's are particularly interesting. The preparation and properties of these compounds are described, along with a series of recent experiments with hydrogen doping which have helped to elucidate their electronic properties. A density of states model suggested by the results of the hydrogen–doping experiments is presented and used to explain the variation of the superconducting transition temperature in these materials.
