Theory of Superconductors with Spatially Varying Order Parameter

  • Reiner Kümmel


The purpose of this paper is to show that a unified treatment of the principal cases of spatially varying superconductivity at any temperature below T c is possible by means of the WKBJ method of Bardeen et al.1 as far as such fundamental aspects of superconducting systems as the energy spectrum, the spatial variation of the pair potential, and the effect of magnetic fields and impurities are concerned.
