    We investigate the Josephson effect between two coupled superconductors, coupled by the tunneling of pairs of electrons, in the regime that their energy level spacing is comparable to the bulk superconducting gap, but neglecting any charging effects. In this regime, BCS theory is not valid, and...

    We provide a mixing model to explore the metastable state and the macroscopic quantum tunneling (MQT) of binary mixtures. For $g_{12} >\sqrt {g_1 g_2}$, we first observe the two condensates form the symmetry-breaking state (SBS) and then suddenly transfer to the symmetry-preserving state (SPS)...

    The Josephson tunneling current in S-I-S structures where the main current transport channel is resonant tunneling through an isolated localized state is calculated using the Bogolyubov-de Gennes equations.

    It is shown that in the range of tunneling resonance energies of an S-I-S (superconductor-insulator-superconductor) junction with weak (low impurity concentrations) structural disorder in the I-layer, the average critical current and the magnitude of its mesoscopic fluctuations are determined by...
