The proximity effect of the normal-superconducting superlattice

  • Nanzhi Zou
  • L. Hu


We propose an iterative procedure to solve the linearized Gorkov equation and calculate the superconducting critical temperature of superconductor-normal metal superlattice in the whole region of layer thickness. We also give a discussion of the validity range of the local approximation made on the proximity effect of SN superlattice.
