Proximity effect tunneling

E. L. Wolf

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Recent work in proximity electron tunneling (PET) into NS structures is critically reviewed, emphasizing its evolution from earlier work of Tomasch, Rowell, deGennes, McMillan and others. The degree to which quantitative electron-phonon spectroscopy of superconductors S and normal metals N may be possible is investigated, with emphasis on results from foil-based CINS junction analyzed via Arnold's form of the specular theory.
