Superconducting properties of metallic heterostructures

Ivan K. Schuller, Charles M. Falco

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We review our recent results on the superconducting properties of artificially prepared metallic heterostructures. Our sputtering system used to prepare these materials is described in detail along with a calculation of the thermalization of sputtered atoms. The structure of Nb/Cu and Nb/Ti heterostructures is discussed, as are Tc, energy gap, and phonon frequency measurements.
