We study the $I$-$V$ characteristics of S$_{\text{T}}$/n/N contacts, where S$_{\text{T}}$ is a BCS superconductor S with a built-in exchange field $h$, n represents a normal metal wire, and N---a normal metal reservoir. The superconductor S$_{\text{T}}$ is separated from the n-wire by a spin filter which allows the passage of electrons with a certain spin direction so that only fully polarized triplet Cooper pairs penetrate into the n-wire. We show that both the subgap conductance $\sigma_…

Current fluctuations in unconventional superconductor junctions with impurity scattering

The order parameter of bulk two-dimensional superconductors is classified as nodal, if it vanishes for a direction in momentum space, or gapful if it does not. Each class can be topologically



Nonequilibrium superconductivity

In general, the quasiparticles, phonons, and pair field in a superconductor driven by an external source are out of equilibrium. Here we review briefly the various quasiparticle and phonon lifetimes
