FIG. 1.

Schematic design of SIsFS Josephson junction. Solid line demonstrates typical distribution of pair potential along the structure. It reaches bulk values in the S electrodes, is suppressed in the middle s layer and vanishes in the ferromagnetic region F. The characteristic length scales are also marked in the figure: is the London penetration depth and is the coherence length typical for niobium.

FIG. 2.

Characteristic voltage of the SIsFS structures versus thickness of the F-layer for different thicknesses of the middle superconducting film at . Short-dashed straight line shows the product of the tunnel SIS junction at the same temperature. Interface parameters: and at the sF and FS interfaces.

FIG. 3.

The temperature dependence of characteristic voltage of SIsFS structure for different values of exchange field in the F-layer. The short-dashed line demonstrates the dependence characteristic for a conventional tunnel SIS junction. It is seen how the exchange field H shifts the effective critical temperature , corresponding to the switching of the s-layer from the superconducting state to the normal one. The circles show measured in Nb-Al/AlO-Nb-PdFe-Nb junctions, proving the existence of effective critical temperature in these samples.

FIG. 4.

The dependence of characteristic voltage on F-layer thickness in the SIsFS structure with the s-layer in the superconducting state. Inset shows the current-phase relation in the vicinity of the first transition. Switching from 0 to state in the mode (1a) preserves the value of critical current as well as characteristic voltage .

FIG. 5.

Experimental dependence of critical current versus increasing (open circles) and decreasing (open squares) external magnetic field . Solid and dashed lines present the microscopic fitting of the data. Inset shows the theoretical and experimental magnetization loops versus external magnetic field
