@article{Khveshchenko2005DissipativePT, title={Dissipative phase transition in two-dimensional d-wave Josephson junctions}, author={D. V. Khveshchenko}, journal={Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter}, year={2005}, volume={18}, pages={2443 - 2452} }

Quantum dynamics of in-plane Josephson junctions between two d-wave superconducting films is described by the anisotropic XY-model, where both quasiparticle and Cooper pair tunnelling terms appear to be equally non-local. Applying a combination of the weak and strong coupling analyses to this model, we find compelling evidence of a dissipative phase transition. The corresponding critical behaviour is studied and contrasted with that found previously in the conventional (s-wave) Josephson…
