Interference effects in mesoscopic superconductor structures
Interference effects which arise during the flow of a quasiparticle current through "hybrid" mesoscopic systems, in which a normal conductor (N) is in contact with superconducting (S) and normal (N) regions (banks), are analyzed. A Josephson effect is manifested in such systems, despite the absence of a current through one or both of the 5 banks. This effect becomes a time-varying effect at currents (or voltages) above a certain threshold. Some nontrivial structural features induced on the current-voltage characteristic by the interference effects are analyzed. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
