Coherent control of the gap function in superconductors on the nanoscale

Ilya Grigorenko, Herschel Rabitz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We propose a nonequilibrium mechanism of the gap function enhancement in nanoscale superconductors. The mechanism is based on coherent control and localization of the spatial distribution of Bogoliubov quasiparticles on the scale much less than the wavelength of the control field.
