Spectrum of constrained electronic states in heterostructures formed with superconductor and ferromagnetic metals
The dependence of ballistic Josephson’s current though heterostructures superconductor– ferromagnetic metal–isolator–ferromagnetic metal–superconductor (SF1–I–F2S) on the heterostructure’s parameters is calculated. The conditions, under which a significant increase in the considered Josephson’s current may be observed, are suggested.
