Abstract
We examine transport properties of superconducting hybrid mesoscopic structures, in both the diffusive and ballistic regimes. For diffusivestructures, analytic results from quasiclassical theory are compared with predictions from numerical, multiplescattering calculations performed on small structures. For many structures, the two methods yield comparable results and in some cases, quantitative agreement is obtained. These results not only demonstrate that quasiclassical theory can yield the ensemble averaged conductance [G] of small structures of dimensions of order 1020 Fermi wavelengths, but also establish that numericalscattering calculations on such small structures can yield results for [G] which are characteristic of much larger systems. One exception arises for Andreev interferometers, where quasiclassical theory predicts a vanishing conductance at a phase difference phi=pi, whereas our numerical approach yields a finite value. We suggest that this is aconsequence of the onedimensional nature of the currently available quasiclassical descriptions. Having compared the two approaches, we extend the multiplescattering analysis to the ballistic limit, where the sample dimensions become smaller than the elastic mean free path. Inthis limit, the numerical results can be understood in terms of a twochannel model, which emphasizes the role of interchannel scattering.
