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.
