    Thermal modulation measurements using 120 fs/620 nm laser pulses were performed on niobium films. The electron-phonon relaxation time was found to be ultrafast and measured to be 360 fs, and the electron-phonon coupling constant was estimated to be (17±3)×1017 W m-3 K-1.

    High quality epitaxial NbN/MgO/NbN Josephson junctions have been realized with MgO barriers up to a thickness of d = 1 nm. The junction properties coherently scale with the size of barrier, and low critical current densities down to 3 A/cm2 have been achieved for larger barriers. In this limit,...

    We analyze the current-voltage characteristics of a Nb superconductor-insulator-superconductor mixer with NbTiN leads to identify the heating processes in this device. We argue that the electron-electron interaction is much faster than the electron-phonon interaction, and show that the heat flow...

    We analyze a possible superconductivity in the hole-doped system of layered hydrogenized graphene by taking into account thermal fluctuations of the order parameter. In particular, we demonstrate that in the one-layer case the values of the high mean-field (MF) critical temperature...

    In this paper we present a new approach to build a laser-metal thermal interaction model with consideration of solving the two temperatures: electron and phonon temperatures. Using only one Fourier equation we can get information about the three-dimensional thermal fields, surface temperature...

    Phonon softening due to the electron-phonon coupling in a square lattice with anisotropy is studied at finite temperatures. The anisotropy is introduced as the difference between the electronic transfer integrals tx and ty in the x- and y-directions. When tx ty and the temperature is lowered...

    Using Ta, 2H-NbSe2 and MgB2 as an example it is shown that it is possible to reconstruct qualitatively a function of the electron-phonon interaction from microcontact spectra in a superconducting state. The limits and the restrictions of this method are also shown. The results obtained are...

    The thermoelectric performance of YbCaMnO doped with Nb at B-site is investigated in this paper. It is found that there is a phase transition from O-type to O*-type orthorhombic structure with increasing of Nb doping content, which indicates that the structure distortion becomes more seriously....

    Precise measurements of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) is crucial to cosmology, since any proposed model of the Universe must account for the features of this radiation. E_cient very large bolometer arrays (>10,000 pixels) constitute an important challenge for CMB observations and are...
