We consider the effects of an externally applied electrostatic field on superconductivity, self-consistently within a BCS mean-field model, for a clean three-dimensional (3D) metal thin film. The electrostatic change in superconducting condensation energy scales as Δ/μ close to subband edges as a function of the Fermi energy μ and follows 3D scaling (Δ/μ)2 away from them. We discuss nonlinearities beyond the gate effect and contrast results with recent experiments on gating effects on Josephson junctions.

Flat-band superconductivity in periodically strained graphene : mean-field and Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless transition Peltonen, Teemu Juhani; Heikkilä, Tero T. (Institute of physics, 2020)In the search of high-temperature superconductivity one option is to focus on increasing the density of electronic states. Here we study both the normal and s-wave superconducting state properties of periodically strained ...

Proximity effect in superconducting heterostructures with strong spin-orbit coupling and spin splitting Lu, Yao; Heikkilä, Tero T. (American Physical Society, 2019)It has been shown that singlet Cooper pairs can be converted into triplet ones and diffuse into a ferromagnet over a long distance in a phenomenon known as the long-range proximity effect (LRPE). This happens in materials ...
Peltonen, Teemu; Ojajärvi, Risto; Heikkilä, Tero (American Physical Society, 2018)Recent experiments show how a bilayer graphene twisted around a certain magic angle becomes superconducting as it is doped into a region with approximate flat bands.
