Josephson oscillation linewidth of ion-irradiated YBa2Cu3O7 junctions


We report on the noise properties of ion-irradiated YBa2Cu3O7 Josephson junctions. This work aims at investigating the linewidth of the Josephson oscillation with a detector response experiment at sime132 GHz. Experimental results are compared with a simple analytical model based on the Likharev–Semenov equation and the de Gennes dirty limit approximation. We show that the main source of low-frequency fluctuations in these junctions is the broadband Johnson noise and that the excess $\left(\tfrac{1}{f}\right)$ noise contribution does not prevail in the temperature range of interest, as reported in some other types of high-T c superconducting Josephson junctions. Finally, we discuss the interest of ion-irradiated junctions to implement frequency-tunable oscillators consisting of synchronized arrays of Josephson junctions.
