Hysteretic current-voltage characteristics and Coulomb blockade in 1D-arrays of Josephson junctions
2000 (English)In: Physica. B, Condensed matter, ISSN 0921-4526, Vol. 280, no 04-jan, 414-415 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The IV characteristics (IVC) of 1D-arrays of small capacitance Josephson junctions with E-C similar to E-J have been measured. The IVC show Coulomb blockade of Cooper pair tunneling and exhibit a pronounced hysteresis which appears to be dual to the well-known resistively shunted junction behavior of ordinary Josephson junctions. A dual serially resistive junction model is used to qualitatively explain the measured data.
