Author(s): Juha Leppäkangas and Michael Marthaler We study scattering of propagating microwave fields by a dc-voltage-biased Josephson junction. At subgap voltages, a small Josephson junction works merely as a nonlinear boundary that can absorb, amplify, and diversely convert propagating microwaves. In the leading-order perturbation theory of the J... [Phys. Rev. B 98, 224511] Published Tue Dec 18, 2018
