Abstract: We consider the Ginzburg-Landau functional to analyze SNS junctions in a one-dimensional ring. We compare several canonical scalings. The linearized problem is solved to obtain the phase transition curves. We compute the $ \Gamma $-limit of the functional in the different scalings. The interaction of several junctions is analyzed. We study the zero set of the order parameter for distinguished values of the flux. Finally, we compute the currents in the weakly nonlinear regime.
