The Kondo effect, a phenomenon found in 1930’s [1] and interpreted by Kondo in 1964[2], still attracts much attention in recent years due to the great advance of the nanotechnology. In this talk, we firstly give a brief review on the Kondo physics [3] and its experimental studies[4,5,6]. Then, we focus on several explicit systems to show the nature of the Kondo effect like the single magnetic atom on the surface of the normal metal [7] or graphene[8], quantum dot systems[9,10], and so on. Finally, we focus on recent works on the competition between the superconductivity and the Kondo effect, which uncovers the interplay between these two interactions[11].
