Josephson and Quasiparticle Tunneling in High-Tc Superconductors

  • M. Gurvitch


The subject of tunneling in high temperature superconductors (HTSC) is too wide for a comprehensive review a few pages long. This brief account is by necessity imcomplete and subjective — a frame taken out of a movie.
