Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel kind of Josephson Energy Suppression Pump (JESP) controlled by a fully magnetic flux drive. The device presented here is composed of two superconducting loops interrupted at one side by superconducting nanowires which are joined together by a superconducting island. The phase difference developed at the edges of the nanowires by means of the magnetic flux threading the loops can collapse their Cooper condensates, leading to complete suppression of the Josephson energies. This mechanism allows to greatly reduce the leakage current when performing Cooper pair pumping by a pure magnetic pumping cycle without involving any gate modulation. The pumping capability of the JESP is studied through a master equation approach in the non-adiabatic case.
