    We have investigated theoretically the conductance of a normal-superconductor point contact in the tunnel limit and analyzed the quantum interference effects originating from the scattering of quasi-particles by point-like defects. Analytical expressions for the oscillatory dependence of the...

    Spin-fluctuation scattering in an ensemble of strongly correlated electrons in CuO2 planes of high-temperature superconductors is investigated. It is demonstrated that this process significantly modifies the distribution function of Hubbard quasiparticles. The influence of spin-fluctuation...

    The behavior of the crossed differential conductance is studied on superconductor multi-contacts from the Keldysh formalism and the propagators of the quasiparticles associated with the Bogoliubov-de Gennes equations. We find that for a separation between the contacts of the order of the...

    Tunneling spectra of near optimally doped, submicron Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ intrinsic Josephson junctions are presented, and examined in the region where the superconducting gap evolves into pseudogap. The spectra are analyzed using a self-energy model, proposed by Norman et al., in which both...

    We report the results of detailed numerical simulations of Gray’s transistor mechanism [Appl. Phys. Lett. 32, 392 (1978)]. These calculations, carried out using two different approaches, show that the energy scattering of quasiparticles is very important in achieving gain such as Gray...

    We have fabricated submicron injection-controlled NbN links with gain and measured their injection-triggered superconducting-to-normal transition to occur in 0.5–2.6 ns at 4 K, governed by condensate dynamics. The transient pulse shape displays a rising-edge kinetic-inductance spike and a...
