Abstract

This paper describes the events leading to the discovery of coupled superconductors, the author’s move in the 1970s to a perspective where mind plays a role comparable to matter, and the remarkable hostility sometimes encountered by those who venture into unconventional areas.

PACS: 74.50.+r Tunneling phenomena; Josephson effects.

Key words: discovery of coupled superconductors, mind and matter, ac supercurrents.
