  • For certain orientations of Josephson junctions between two px-wave or two d-wave superconductors, the subgap Andreev bound states produce a $4\pi$-periodic relation between the Josephson current I and the phase difference $\phi$: $I\propto\sin(\phi/2)$. Consequently, the ac Josephson current has the fractional frequency $eV/\hbar$, where V is the dc voltage. In the tunneling limit, the Josephson current is proportional to the first power (not square) of the electron tunneling amplitude. Thus… CONTINUE READING
