Cooper Pair Transport In Systems Of Ultrasmall Josephson Junctions
In the recent years the tunnel junctions of ultrasmall size have drawn attention of many researchers. This is due to new effects of correlated tunneling of charged particles (single electrons and Cooper pairs) in the junctions and their very alluring applications (see, e.g., Refs. 1-3). The physics of correlated transfer of single electrons in ultrasmall tunnel junctions and complex systems of such junctions is well investigated both theoretically and experimentally. Unlike this single electron tunneling (SET) domain the study of Cooper pair tunneling (CPT) in ultrasmall objects has been basically restricted to the simplest system of a single junction and the energy source.
