Title: Manifestation of the proximity effects in tunnel conductance of multilayer systems

Abstract

An experimental investigation was made of the tunnel characteristics of thin films of ''poorly conducting'' substances, CuCl, Bi--Sb, and normal metals, Cu and Ag, covered by superconducting lead. These characteristics were determined in a wide temperature range (1--300 /sup 0/K) at pressures up to 17 kbar. The changes in the tunnel conductance of these systems were explained qualitatively within the framework of the familiar ideas of the proximity effect. It was found that a copper chloride film had semiconducting properties and did not go over to the metallic and superconducting state.
