Abstract : A high current amplifier, three terminal device, comprising a Josephson tunnel junction and a Schottky diode is configured so that the Josephson junction and Schottky diode share a common base electrode which is made very thin. Electrons which cross the Schottky barrier are supplied to the Josephson junction to obtain the amplified output current.
