In this thesis we investigate superconducting hybrids made from two material systems, namely, molecules and layered materials. For studies of superconducting phenomena in molecular junctions we develop two platforms which rely on the superconducting proximity effect to preserve pre-existing nano-gap formation techniques and bonding chemistries. In the second half of this thesis we investigate the thickness dependent properties of the 2H crystal phase of two layered materials; molybdenum disulfide (2H-MoS2)
and tantalum disulfide (2H-TaS2).
