Supercurrent-controlled multiple-beam interference of Andreev-reflected quasiparticle waves

Noriyuki Hatakenaka, Susumu Kurihara

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Multiple-beam interference of Andreev-reflected quasiparticle waves is studied. Unlike the two-beam interferometer, the multiple-beam interferometer produces sharp and large interference fringes. The interference can be controlled by the supercurrent flowing through one-dimensional superconductors.
