# Electron‐electron interaction in linear arrays of small tunnel junctions

@article{Likharev1995ElectronelectronII, title={Electron‐electron interaction in linear arrays of small tunnel junctions}, author={Konstantin K. Likharev and Kenji Matsuoka}, journal={Applied Physics Letters}, year={1995}, volume={67}, pages={3037-3039} }

We have calculated the spatial distribution of the electrostatic potential created by an unbalanced charge q in one of the conducting electrodes of a long, uniform, linear array of small tunnel junctions. The distribution describes, in particular, the shape of a topological single‐electron soliton in such an array. An analytical solution obtained for a circular cross‐section model is compared with results of geometrical modeling of a more realistic structure with square cross section. These…
