Conductance quantization, supercurrent and multiple Andreev reflection in bilayer graphene quantum point contacts

Danneau, R.

Abstract (englisch):
By using local displacement fields in bilayer graphene (BLG), it is possible to elec- trostatically confine charge carriers. Connecting superconducting leads to a graphene nanostructure allows to induce high ballistic supercurrent. We demonstrate that it is possible to fully gate-control both amplitude and density profile of the supercurrent, making BLG a highly tunable superconducting weak link [1]. Adding an additional overall top gate, one better controls the 1D constriction and observes four fold degen- erate quantized conductance down to full pinch-off [2]. We show that this ballistic effect is also reflected in the supercurrent and in the multiple Andreev reflection as the number of discrete channels is reduced [3].
