Superconductivity in thin wires

Eugene Demler

(Harvard University)

Abstract:  Superconducting proximity effect in carbon nanotubes will be considered.  It will be shown that the Tomasch-Rowell oscillations lead to a non-trivial oscillating dependence of the critical current on the width of the nanotube and the gate voltage, and may be measured experimentally.  General discussion of superconductivity in thin wires will be given.
