Fluxons in Josephson Transmission Lines

  • Michel Remoissenet


The superconducting Josephson junctions (Barone and Paterno 1982; Parmentier 1978; Lomdahl 1985; Likharev 1986; Pedersen 1986) have proven to be one of the most successful testing grounds for nonlinear wave theory; their use for information processing and storage is quite attractive. In the long Josephson junction or transmission line, the physical quantity of interest is a quantum of magnetic flux, or a fluxon, which has a soliton behavior. It is a remarkably robust and stable object, which can be easily manipulated at high speed and stored electronically. Consequently it should be used as a basic bit in information processing systems.
