Paper Abstract

The frequency and power measurements technique using ac Josephson effect is founded on deviation of the voltagecurrent curve of irradiated Josephson junction from its autonomous voltage-current (V-I) curve [1]. Generally this technique, in case of harmonic incident radiation, may be characterized in the following manner: -to measure frequency of the hannonic microwave signal inadiating the Josephson junction and to estimate its intensity using functional processing of the voltage-current curves, one should identify the "Special feature existence" zone on the voltage-current curves. The "Special feature existence" zone results the junction's response to the incident radiation. As this takes place, it is necessary to define the coordinate of a central point of the "Special feature existence" zone on the curve and to estimate the deviation of the V-I curve of irradiated Josephson junction from its autonomous V-I curve. The practical implementation of this technique place at one's disposal a number of algorithms, which enable to realize frequency measurements and intensity estimation with a particular accuracy for incident radiation. This paper presents two rational algorithms to determine the aggregate of their merits and disadvantages and to choose more optimal one.
