Critical Current Suppression in Spin-Filter Josephson Junctions

Ferromagnetic Josepshon junctions (SFS JJs) are the basic cell of an intense research activity that extends to spintronics. The simultaneous presence of low-dissipative behavior and spin-filtering

Microscopic Tunneling Model of Nb–AlN–NbN Josephson Flux-Flow Oscillator

Since the very first experimental realization of a Josephson flux-flow oscillator (FFO), its theoretical description has been limited by the phenomenological perturbed sine-Gordon equation (PSGE).

Observations in Use of a Tunnel Junction Model in Simulations of Josephson Digital Circuits

A microscopic tunneling Josephson junction compact model framework is developed and incorporated in the Synopsys HSPICE commercial circuit simulator, which takes into account the computed BCS energy gap as a function of temperature and uses a table-lookup technique for rapid generation of temperature-specific parameters.

Gap resonance in the classical dynamics of the current-biased Josephson tunnel junctions

This work reports a novel time-domain expression for the current-response kernels of a Josephson tunnel junction between BCS superconductors with in general different energy gaps, and its use to

Josephson junction with variable thickness of the dielectric layer.

It is shown that the modified area of the junction acts on the fluxon as a potential barrier and the relation between the critical bias current and the thickness of the dielectric layer is analytically and numerically determined.

Dynamics of Josephson tunnel junctions with a finite-width Riedel peak

The basic properties of high-current-density Josephson tunnel junctions are calculated from the microscopic theory taking into account a finite width 2δ of the Riedel peak. The calculated I-V curves

Microscopic tunneling theory of long Josephson junctions.

It is demonstrated that the detailed behavior of a solitonic mode (fluxon dynamics) in the junction is different from the results of the conventional perturbed sine-Gordon model.

junction is discussed in detail. The vortex potential is formed due to its interaction with an inplane magnetic field and a bias current applied to the junction. The profile of the potential is

Tunneling between superconductors

Josephson's calculations showed that for two superconductors separated by an oxide there may exist an osciliating supercurrent of frequency 2e V/h (V is applied voltage) and a possible d-c

Fluxon collider for multiple fluxon–antifluxon collisions

We describe a device for generation and trapping of fluxon–antifluxon (FA) pairs in a long annular Josephson junction. The trapped fluxons and antifluxons experience multiple collisions and

Specific problems of numerical analysis of the Josephson junction circuits

These problems are not typical for the semiconductor electronics and thus had presumably not been considered in the designing of earlier CAD systems, and the algorithms based on these methods are incorporated into the CAD program COMPASS, extensively used for analysis of various analog and digital devices based on the Josephson effect.
