The difference between the chemical potentials for pairs (μ) and quasiparticles (μρ) at the boundaries of a short superconducting weak link, which is usually disregarded, is shown to be important when solving for the behavior of the link using the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equation, Selected computational results are presented to illustrate the effects of the improved boundary conditions on the space (time) dependence of μ, μρ, and normal current Jη.
