Abstract

The electrical characteristics of two different 1-V binary programmable Josephson arrays, an superconductor/insulator/normal conductor/insulator/superconductor-type Josephson array, and an externally shunted superconductor/insulator/superconductor-type Josephson array, were investigated at ten metrology institutes. Various operational parameters were evaluated and compared using different Josephson array voltage standard setups at microwave frequencies around 70 GHz. The results of the measurements show that both arrays have been working very well and the main differences were not imposed by the arrays themselves, but by the different measurement setups of the laboratories.
