Superconducting helix penetration

  1. Jun 19, 2006 #1
    In the giant proximity effect of superconductors, the penetrating supercurrent can be modelled using bosons. During some project work, modeling this phenomena Using vortices, I was thinking, whether the bosons can penetrate the interface of the normal conducting material being modelled by a helix, or a cork screw motion, just like a drill head would penetrate into a lump of wood? Could this be a possible model??

    You have to describe the model. A model is different from an analogy.

    If there is a model that I'm missing, how is it different from that of the regular Josphson effect? And does it work only when N is an underdoped cuprate?
