Oscillations of Andreev states in clean ferromagnetic films.

Abstract

We investigate the influence of the exchange field on the Andreev bound states in a ferromagnetic ( F) film backed on one side by a superconductor ( S). Our model accounts for diffusive reflection at the outer surface and possible backscattering at the FS interface. Phase shifting of the Andreev level by the exchange field results in an oscillatory behavior… (More)
