22 April - 2 May 2003

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


Therefore, we propose to organize a Theory Workshop on


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.
