Title: Role of slow relaxation processes in the formation of the Kapitza jump on the boundary between a superconductor and a dielectric

Abstract

The effect of slow relaxation of excitons in a superconductor on the thermal Kapitza resistance between a superconductor and a dielectric is considered. It is shown that the presence of a hierarchy of relaxation length in the superconductor leads to the existence near the boundary of a region that is in strong disequilibrium. The observed Kapitza jump depends on the size of the energy gap. The results of the theory agree in order of magnitude with experiment.
