2002 (English)In: Journal of Physics and Chemistry of Solids, ISSN 0022-3697, E-ISSN 1879-2553, Vol. 63, no 08-jun, 1307-1310 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We report on experiments with one-dimensional (1D) arrays of small-capacitance superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs), where an external magnetic field can be used to tune in situ the Josephson coupling between neighboring superconducting electrodes. We have studied the superconductor-insulator transition in such arrays, and have also used these arrays to bias a single Josephson junction. In the later experiment, we have observed a clear Coulomb blockade of Cooper-pair tunnelling (CBCPT) in the single junction.
