This redistribution of the quasiparticles leads to a nonequilibrium population of the Andreev levels and an enhancement of the supercurrent which is visible as a modified current-phase relation as well as a nonmonotonous critical current as function of temperature. The nonmonotonous behavior is accompanied by a corresponding change in spin-transfer torques acting on the precessing spin and leads to the possibility of using temperature as a means to tune the back-action on the spin.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-03-18T09:25:31Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Physical Review B ; 86 (2012), 5. - 054519</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Belzig, Wolfgang</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dc:creator>Fogelström, Mikael</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:contributor>Fogelström, Mikael</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Belzig, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/22483"/> <dc:creator>Holmqvist, Cecilia</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Holmqvist, Cecilia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Spin-precession-assisted supercurrent in a superconducting quantum point contact coupled to a single-molecule magnet</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-03-18T09:25:31Z</dc:date> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/22483/1/holmqvist_224835.pdf"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
