    Understanding the subgap behavior of Normal metal-Insulator-Superconductor (NIS) tunnel junctions is important in order to be able to accurately model the thermal properties of the junctions. Hekking and Nazarov (Phys. Rev. B 49:6847, ) developed a theory in which NIS subgap current in thin-film...

    The kinetics of the minority-charge-carrier generation current I( t), in the Al- n +-Si-SiO2- n-Si structures with a tunnel-transparent oxide layer, are found to be anomalous. Under depleting gate potentials ( V g<0), sharp peaks are observed in the I( t) curves, whose descending branches attain...
