Numerical Analysis of the Critical Temperature in Superconducting-magnetic Proximity Systems
by Wang, Renyu, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 64; 22584632
Abstract (Summary)

We investigate the non-monotonic behavior of the critical temperature in a

superconductor-ferromagnet bilayer proximity system. The critical temperature is studied

as a function of the ferromagnet thickness with variation of the following parameters: the

resistance of the interface, the ratio of the thickness of the superconductor and the

coherence length, and the exchange energy. We also focus on the Gor'kov function

describing the singlet and triplet pair correlations to analyze, and in particular the

minimum at intermediate value of and re-increase of at larger ferromagnet thickness.
