Paper Abstract

In a superconductor/semiconductor structure, superconducting electron pairs in the superconductor diffuse into the semiconductor because of the proximity effect. This structure has been applied to novel superconducting devices like superconducting transistors and superconducting electron wave devices. These devices are operated by controlling the superconducting wave function in the semiconductor. The physics, fabrication process and operation of the devices are described.
