Aspects of electrostatic charging effects in high-temperature superconductors

  • 30 Accesses

  • 9 Citations

Abstract

Recent results of electrostatic charging effects on high-T c . superconductors are reviewed. The experiments covered include field effects on superconducting thin films, field effects on weak links, and field-induced superconductivity. The emphasis is on the physical processes involved in these experiments and the prospects of using these effects to build superconducting three-terminal devices.
