  • The Josephson effect [1], a hallmark of superconductivity, is of fundamental interest and bears considerable potential for applications in superconducting electronics [2]. Today, the miniaturization of electronic structures has reached the regime where the transport proceeds via few or even a single conducting channel [3]. Using gated structures, junctions can be transformed from insulating SIS to superconducting SNS states with the quasi-particle spectrum evolving from phase-insensitive… CONTINUE READING
