When two superconductors are connected through a tunnel junction, electron pairs -- the so-called Cooper pairs -- can flow from one to the other. This phenomenon is known as the Josephson effect. We have produced a Josephson quantum dot device in which a single SiGe self-assembled quantum dot is placed between two superconducting electrodes.
