Abstract:Josephson current in p-wave superconductor/diffusive normal metal (DN)/p-wave superconductor junctions is calculated by solving the Usadel equation under the Nazarov’s boundary condition extended to unconventional superconductors by changing the heights of the insulating barriers at the interfaces, the magnitudes of the resistance in DN, and the angles between the normal to the interface and the lobe directions of p-wave pair potentials. It is shown that the magnitude of the Josephson current strongly depends on the lobe directions of the p-wave pair potentials and the resulting magnitude of the Josephson current is large compared to that in the s-wave superconducting junctions due to the formation of the resonant states peculiar to p-wave superconductors.
