Abstract:

In the report the authors summarized in detail the status of the two-gap, two-band theory of transition metal superconductivity and the fragmentary experimental data indicating the possibility that an s-gap does indeed exist. They also described the tunneling technique used in their laboratory to directly observe the second gap, as it has evolved in the last five years. The authors now stand poised for a definitive series of experiments to define the thermal behavior of both gaps. The results should resolve any doubt as to the existence of the second gap and also be a critical test of the SMW and other models of transition metal superconductivity Author
