The supercurrent IS of a YBCO bridge can be modulated by the quasiparticle-injection current IG from YBCO/Au or YBCO/PBCO/Au junctions. The behavior of these structures is determined by two effects: 1) summation of the currents IS and IG in the YBCO bridge; 2) nonequilibrium suppression of the supercurrent IS by the quasiparticle-injection. The current gain coefficient ΔIS/ΔIG increases linearly with decreasing temperature, reaching a value of 1.5 for YBCO/Au structures at 65 K. The nature of the nonequilibrium state and the effectiveness of the PBCO barrier layer for the formation of the quasiparticles are analyzed.
