Abstract : The topics of theoretical and experimental interest in this research have been: Behavior of ultrasmall low capacitance (Coulbomb-blockaded) Josephson and normal metal tunnel junction microstructures. Experimentally the microstructures (STM) A particular interest is in the fundamentally new mechanisms of interaction with radiation believed to operate in these systems. The Proximity Induced Josephson Effect (PIJE), an effect occurring at a Normal Metal/Superconductor (N/S) interface which displays many of the features of the Josephson effect, and whose device potential has not been at all explored. Related topics in our research in this project have been methods to form Josephson junctions using cuprate superconductors, and methods to prepare and modify the surface of cuprate superconductors to make Josephson junctions and other electronic devices.
