    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    A gapless excitation spectrum in proximity effect samples Au1-xFex: Pb is observed when the transition temperature Tc of the sandwich has been depressed below Tco (transition temperature when x = 0) by only a few per cent. This extensive range of gapless behavior is in qualitative agreement with the calculation of Kaiser and Zuckerman.
