Millimeterwave detectors have been made of a series-connected array of Josephson junctions. Each junction of the array responds in phase to radiation and therefore the series-connected array as a whole behaves as if it were a single Josephson junction. When the Josephson junctions have a high critical current density, the IF outputs have sharp peaks at the voltages V = 2NΔ/ne where N is the number of the Josephson junctions in series connection and n is an integer. The subharmonic energy gap structures in voltage-current curves of Josephson junctions come from the Andreev-reflection-assisted-tunneling according to the recent Arnold theories.
