We have analyzed the energy gaps and density-of-states (DOS) of layered supercon-
ductors with two inequivalent layers in a unit cell along the c-axis. In the physically
interesting parameter range where the interlayer hopping strengths of the quasiparticles
are comparable to the critical temperature, the-peaks in the DOS curve do not correspond
to the order parameters (OP's) of each layer, but depend on the OP's and the interlayer
hopping strengths in a complex manner. In contrast to a BCS superconductor, the DOS
of layered systems have logarithmic singularities. Our simulated tunneling characteristics
bear close resemblance to experimental results.
