Josepshson Junction
A type of {electronic} {circuit} capable of
switching at very high speeds when operated at temperatures
approaching {absolute zero}.Its low power dissipation factor makes it
useful in {high density computer circuits}.

Hi Denis,
Thanks again for providing me the oppurtunity to edit
FOLDOC. I have edited the Josephson Junction entry submitted to me on
May 28,2004.If you have any comments on it,kindly let me know.

I am ready to take up the next entry and contribute to FOLDOC.

Warm Regards,
Senthil
