Paper Abstract

The design and application of Josephson-coupled multilayers (JCMs) as active switching devices in superconducting electronics requires an understanding of the transient dynamics of these structures. We discuss the theoretical issues surrounding the switching dynamics of JCMs, and describe our own theoretical model which includes the high frequency behavior of the superconducting layers through a nonlocal treatment involving the charge-current conservation equations. We cast our discussion in the context of materials system, from that of conventional low Tc engineered JCMs to that of intrinsic high Tc compounds. The possibility of coherent stable state switching in JCM structures is explored.
