The effects of reduced dimensionality on the superconductivity of thin films - Nb(100) and V(100) - and Ag/V/Ag(100) sandwiches are investigated using our all-electron self-consistent full potential linearized augmented plane wave (FLAPW) method. Results of calculations of the electronic structures are used along with the rigid-ion approximation and McMillan strong coupling theory to calculate the layer-by-layer contribution to the electron-phonon coupling.
