Phase coherent transport in hybrid superconducting structures: the case of d-wave superconductors

We examine the effect of d-wave symmetry on zero bias anomalies in normal-superconducting tunnel junctions. In the presence of d-wave pairing, zero-bias anomalies are suppressed compared with the s-wave case.
