Summary When a thin layer of normal (non-superconducting) material is placed between layers of superconducting material, a superconducting-normal-superconducting junction is formed. This paper considers a model for the junction based on the Ginzburg-Landau equations as the thickness of the normal layer tends to zero, The model is first derived formally by averaging the unknown variables in the normal layer. Rigorous convergence is then established, as well as an estimate for the order of convergence. Numerical results are shown for one-dimensional junctions.
