Motivated by recent advances in the fabrication of Josephson junctions in which the weak link is made of a low-dimensional non-superconducting material, we present here a systematic theoretical study of the local density of states (LDOS) in a clean 2D normal metal (N) coupled to two s-wave superconductors (S). To be precise, we employ the quasiclassical theory of superconductivity in the clean limit, based on Eilenberger's equations, to investigate the phase-dependent LDOS as function of…

The self-consistent pair potential and the density of states in a proximity-contact superconducting-normal (S-N) finite double layer are discussed in the clean limit and the enhancement of ${\mathit{T}^{\mathrm{\ensuremath{-}}1}$ just below the transition temperature is found on both sides, which qualitatively agrees with experiments.

It is shown that ﬁnite transverse dimensions are related to pronounced effects in the LDOS, such as fast oscillations superimposed on the quasiparticle interference oscillations ~forNS! and additional peaks in the bound state spectrum in the subgap region ~for SNS!.
