Title Orientational pinning and transverse voltage: Simulations and experiments in square Josephson junction arrays Type Journal Article
Year 2000 Publication Phys. Rev. B Abbreviated Journal
Volume 62 Issue 6 Pages 4096-4104
Keywords
Abstract We study the dependence of the transport properties of square Josephson Junctions arrays with the direction of the applied dc current, both experimentally and numerically. We present computational simulations of current-voltage curves at finite temperatures for a single vortex in an array of $L\times L$ junctions ($Ha^2/?_0=f=1/L^2$), and experimental measurements in $100\times1000$ arrays under a low magnetic field corresponding to $f\approx0.02$. We find that the transverse voltage vanishes only in the directions of maximum symmetry of the square lattice: the [10] and [01] direction (parallel bias) and the [11] direction (diagonal bias). For orientations different than the symmetry directions, we find a finite transverse voltage which depends strongly on the angle φ of the current. We find that vortex motion is pinned in the [10] direction ($?=0$), meaning that the voltage response is insensitive to small changes in the orientation of the current near $?=0$. We call this phenomenon orientational pinning. This leads to a finite transverse critical current for a bias at $?=0$ and to a transverse voltage for a bias at $?\not=0$. On the other hand, for diagonal bias in the [11] direction the behavior is highly unstable against small variations of φ, leading to a rapid change from zero transverse voltage to a large transverse voltage within a few degrees. This last behavior is in good agreement with our measurements in arrays with a quasi-diagonal current drive.

Title Transverse voltage in disordered Josephson junction arrays with diagonal bias Type Journal Article
Year 2004 Publication Journal of Low Temperature Physics Abbreviated Journal
Volume 135 Issue Pages 135-138
Keywords
Abstract We study numerically the effect of disorder in the transport properties of square Josephson junction arrays with a dc current applied in the diagonal direction ([11] direction). We obtain a finite transverse voltage in this case when we consider the presence of disorder in the critical currents of the junctions. We show that this behavior is in good agreement with previous experimental, results in square arrays with a diagonal current drive.
