Josephson effect in cuprate superconducting structures
Electron transport and microwave properties of cuprate superconducting structures (bicrystal junctions and hybrid mesa heterostructures) are discussed here. Superconducting current in junctions from
Superconducting current in hybrid heterojunctions of metal-oxide superconductors: Size and frequency dependences
We have detected experimentally considerable deviations of the frequency dependences of the Shapiro step amplitudes and the critical current of Nb/Au/YBa2Cu3Ox thin-film hybrid Josephson
The current-phase relation in Josephson junctions
This review provides a theoretical basis for understanding the current-phase relation (CPhiR) for the stationary (dc) Josephson effect in various types of superconducting junctions. The authors
The 0 and pi contact array model of bicrystal junctions and interferometers
The array model of the faceted bicrystal Josephson junctions has been developed more comprehensively. The facet size and the facet critical current dependence on magnetic field are taken in to


Low-Temperature Anomaly in the Josephson Critical Current of Junctions in d-Wave Superconductors.
The Josephson critical current diverges, formally, in the zero-temperature limit for an ideally specular tunnel barrier with a small transparency, and is shown to be sensitive to the barrier transparency and barrier roughness, which broaden the midgap delta peak in the density of states.
YBa2Cu3Ox Josephson junctions on a bicrystal sapphire substrate for devices in the millimeter and submillimeter wavelength ranges
High-temperature superconducting Josephson junctions on bicrystal sapphire substrates were fabricated and investigated experimentally. The critical parameters of the junctions satisfy the constraints
Current-carrying states in Josephson junctions.
A unified treatment of clean Josephson junctions, both tunnel junctions and weak links, is developed for the static case and it is found that the energy spectrum depends strongly on the phase difference between the two superconductors.
Superconducting weak links
This review covers experimental results and theoretical ideas on the properties of superconducting weak links, i.e., weak electrical contacts between superconducting electrodes which exhibit direct
Spatially continuous zero-bias conductance peak on (110) YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7{minus}{delta}} surfaces
We report the observation of a pronounced high zero-bias conductance peak (ZBCP) in the conductance spectra of (110)-oriented YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7{minus}{delta}} epitaxial thin-film surfaces by
Superconducting and normal-state properties of YBa2Cu3O7−δ -bicrystal grain boundary junctions in thin films
A model, based on universal properties of high-Tc superconductors only, is presented for the transport characteristics of grain boundaries in these materials. The model accounts for the
Theory of Josephson effects in anisotropic superconductors
An analytical formula for the dc Josephson current in anisotropic singlet superconductor/insulator/anisotropic singlet superconductor junctions is presented. The formula is applicable for junctions
YBa/sub 2/Cu/sub 3/O/sub 7-x/ Josephson junctions on bicrystal Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ and SrTiO/sub 3/ substrates
Bicrystal grain-boundary junctions (bi-GBJs) have been reproducibly fabricated on SrTiO/sub 3/ (STO) and r-plane Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ (sapphire) bicrystal substrates. Sapphire bicrystals are candidates
Integrated sub-MM wave receivers
The concept of a fully integrated superconducting receiver looks very attractive for sub-mm space astronomy where low weight, power consumption and volume are required. The possibility to integrate
