Paper Abstract

We study theoretically the Josephson coupling in a ferromagnetic weak link between both isotropic s-wave, and layered d-wave superconductors. For strong ferromagnetic barrier influence, the conventional coupling is obtained, with ground state phase difference across the link 0 < (phi) gs <EQ (pi) . When the weak link is a part of a superconducting ring, this is accompanied by the flow of spontaneous supercurrent, of intensity which depends on the reduced inductance l equals 2(pi) LIc(T)/(Phi) 0, and is non-zero only for l greater than a critical value. For l >> 1, another consequence of the unconventional coupling is the anomalous quantization of the magnetic flux.
