Charging effects and quantum crossover in granular superconductors.
It is argued that, in the presence of charge ordering, a nonmonotonic behavior with decreasing temperature is possible with a maximum in the resistance just before entering the superconducting phase.
Effect of charging energy on superconductivity in granular metal films
Previous model calculations of the superconducting properties of aggregates of superconducting grains coupled by Josephson tunnel barriers did not take into account the charging energy associated
Spin-glass state of a randomly diluted granular superconductor.
A randomly diluted lattice of Josephson tunnel junctions is used as a model to generate a replicated Landau-Ginzburg field theory describing the properties of diluted superconductors near the
Quantum fluctuations in two-dimensional superconductors
For granular metallic films or two-dimensional arrays of Josephson junctions, fluctuations in the number of Cooper pairs are conjugate to the superconducting phase and can lead to zero-point
Phase coherence in the josephson-coupled stack of planar spin-charge separated condensates and the interlayer mechanism of high-Tc superconductivity
A system of spin-charge separated stack of two-dimensional condensates interacting via the interplane Josephson coupling E⊥J is studied in the "phase only" quantum rotor representation as a model of
Phase phonon spectrum and melting in a quantum rotor model with diagonal disorder
We study the zero temperature $(T=0)$ quantum rotor model with on-site disorder in the charging energy. Such a model may serve as an idealized Hamiltonian for an array of Josephson-coupled small
Short range and long range phase coherence in granular superconductors
The Josephson phase model with charging energies is studied in the Oguchi pair approximation. Allowing for the short-range fluctuations of the phase eliminates the reentrant feature predicted by some
Phase diagram of Josephson junction arrays with capacitive disorder
We study the phase diagram at finite temperature of Josephson junction arrays with capacitive disorder (i.e., random offset charges and/or random charging energies): in the limit of large particle
