Does Tc depend on period in a multilayer geometry?

What is it about?

How do we understand superconductivity in a repeated geometry? Does this have impact on our ability to use superconductors in electronics.

Why is it important?

First measurement of critical current in multilayers as a function of period, showing that not only the Tc but the Jc is independent of the number of periods.
