Phonon Frequencies and Superconductivity in Very Thin Films Academic Article uri icon


  • Moments of the phonon frequency distribution have been calculated for very thin crystalline films and used to estimate electron-phonon coupling constants and superconducting transition temperatures. The results are found to depend strongly on the crystallographic orientation of the film. © 1969 The American Physical Society.
