    We report the demonstration of dc and ac Josephson effects in Nb/Al[sub 2]O[sub 3]/Al/MgB[sub 2] thin-film heterostructure. The heterostructure exhibits moderately hysteretic current–voltage characteristic with a dc Josephson current branch and regular microwave-induced Shapiro steps....

    We found hysteresis in Josephson current when sufficiently strong magnetic field Hz is applied in the direction perpendicular to the junction plane. This is because the magnetic flux is trapped in a superconducting thin film. So, we fabricated the simplified vibrating sample magnetometer, and we...

    We reveal the intrinsic Josephson effect in a La[sub 2-x]Sr[sub x]CuO[sub 4] (LSCO) high-T[sub c] superconductor.
