I need some clarification on what is meant by the energy gap of a superconductor.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

From my own understanding, is is caused by the manifestation of cooper pair, and hence can not obey fermi-dirac statistics, but abides with bose-einstein statistics.

However, I feel that this reasoning is not what is required, any other explainations I would appreciate thanks in advance.

Also can this be measured using neutron scattering and quantum tunnelling?
