Microwave transport spectroscopy on quantum dots with near-field microwave sources is presented. As microwave sources we employ two different Josephson oscillators, being integrated with the AlGaAs/GaAs-heterostructure in which the dots are formed. We observe photon assisted tunneling induced by the Josephson oscillators and compare the results with those using an externally operated microwave source.
