Dynamics of Josephson junctions in a superconducting ring using a “Three-Coils” technique

Cubero García, Oscar Jesús ; Martinoli, Piero (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2007 ; Th.1978.

The aim of this thesis is to observe the Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless (BKT) transition on a magnetically shielded array of Josephson Junctions using an inductive technique. A major component of this work was the design, fabrication and investigation of the dynamics of a Superconductor-Normal-Superconductor (SNS) Josephson junction embedded in a coplanar and gradiometric superconducting coil....

Exotic superconducting mechanisms in Fe and CeCu₂Si₂under pressure

Holmes, Alexander Thomas ; Triscone, Jean-Marc (Dir.) ; Jaccard, Didier (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Genève : 2004 ; Sc. 3539.

This thesis attempts to answer the question: what is the superconducting mechanism in ε-iron and CeCu2Si2? There are many reasons to think that it is not a conventional BCS-type mechanism in either system. Pressure enables us to continuously vary the electronic properties of a material, and fluctuations between different electronic configurations at a quantum instability are likely to cause the...
