We modify and extend previous microscopic calculations of tunneling in superconducting junctions based on a nonequilibrium Green function formalism to include the case of spin-triplet pairing. We show that distinctive features are present in the I-V characteristics of different kinds of junctions, in particular, when the effects of magnetic fields are taken into account, that permit to identify the type of pairing. We discuss the relevance of these results in the context of quasi-one… Expand

Point-contact tunneling in low-dimensional, unconventional superconducting junctions
Abstract It was observed during recent years that, at low temperatures, certain superconducting organic compounds (like for instance ( TMTSF ) 2 - PF 6 , - ClO 4 , etc.) show upper critical fields inExpand
Normal metal to ferromagnetic superconductor tunnelling
We study the point-contact tunnelling between a normal metal and a ferromagnetic superconductor. In the case of magnon-induced pairing the tunnelling conductance is a continuous and smooth functionExpand
Transport properties in ferromagnetic Josephson junctions between triplet superconductors.
It is found that the 0-π transition can occur when the misorientation angle between the exchange field of the ferromagnetic layer and the d-vector is smaller than π/4. Expand

Shot-noise Fano factor as a probe of Majorana localized states in p-wave superconductors
The zero-energy bound states at the edges or vortex cores of chiral p-wave superconductors are expected to behave like Majorana fermions. We introduce a model Hamiltonian that describes theExpand
Transport spectroscopy on trapped superconducting nano-islands of Pb: signature of unconventional pairing.
It is shown that the superconducting order parameter of mesoscopic Pb mixes non-trivially with magnetic field possibly due to the emergence of a local spin-triplet component at such length scales. Expand
Tunneling conductance and local density of states in tight-binding junctions
We study the relationship between the differential conductance and the local density of states in tight-binding tunnel junctions where the junction geometry can be varied between the point-contactExpand

Recent advances in experimental techniques allow one to create a quantum point contact between two Fermi superfluids in cold atomic gases with a tunable transmission coefficient. In this Letter weExpand

We present a microscopic theory of heat and particle transport of an interacting, low temperature Bose-Einstein condensate in a quantum point contact. We show that, in contrast to charged, fermionicExpand
