[en] Here presented a systematic study of superconductor-constriction-superconductor contacts realized by a break-junction technique in layered superconductors. Depending on the constriction transparency the tunneling and SnS-Andreev spectroscopies could be used, for the direct determination of values of superconducting gaps, characteristic BCS-ratios and gap temperature dependences in cuprate superconductors, magne-sium diboride, novel pnictides and chalcogenides. Basing on these data, one can estimate the gap anisotropy magnitude as well as values of electron-boson coupling constants. We discuss the advantages and difficulties of the break-junction technique and demonstrate this method is powerful enough for high-resolution investigation of optical phonon modes in high-temperature superconducting cuprates and for creating of the contacts with the selective transparence in Mg_1_-_xAl_xB_2 compounds.
