    Josephson Junction Arrays and Confined Systems

 
The last few years a great revival of interest has occurred in the physics of Josephson circuits and junctions

The last few years a great revival of interest has occurred in the physics of Josephson circuits

and junctions. This renaissance is driven by some recent discoveries on the quantum behavior

of small Josephson circuits. These circuits have the promise to become the basic units of the

new logic and memory elements for quantum processing. In addition, Josephson junctions

provide the basic physics that governs the behavior of atomic-size metal/superconductor

heterostructures which presently also receives a great deal of attention from experiment and

theory.

 

Therefore, we propose to organize a Theory Workshop on

 

JOSEPHSON JUNCTIONS AND CONFINED STRUCTURES

 

at the Lorentz Center in Leiden, April 21  May 02, 2003. We intend to bring together 
leading specialists in the field to interact and initiate new collaborative projects.
 
Topics are:
 
        SFS junctions and pi-contacts
        Quantum effects in small-size junctions
        Mesoscopic Josephson junctions
        Intrinsic Josephson effect: nonequilibrium properties
        Josephson plasma resonance
        Josephson vortices in layered superconductors
        Crossing vortex lattices
        Proximity effects

 

A diverse group of experimentalists will fuel the discussions and promote the development of

new ideas.
