    Using anodization profiles, we have analyzed the thin AlOx-Al tunneling barrier in a Nb/AlOx-Al/Nb Josephson junction. We measured the voltage width at the AlOx-Al barrier in the profiles and found that it is closely related to the AlOx-Al thickness. We proposed a way to evaluate this thickness...
