Abstract : The possible application to scientific instrumentation of the tunneling process in superconductors is discussed. After a brief description of the basic theory underlying superconductivity, experiments are described which confirms the tunneling process by unpaired electrons and by Cooper pairs. The tunnel current interferometer is described. (Author)
