Josephson effect The Josephson effect is the phenomenon of current flow across two weakly coupled superconductors, separated by a very thin insulating barrier. This arrangement—two superconductors linked by a non-conducting barrier—is known as a Josephson junction; the current that crosses the barrier is the Josephson current.
Josephson energy In superconductivity, the Josephson energy is the potential energy accumulated in the Josephson junction when a supercurrent flows through it. One can think about a Josephson junction as about a non-linear inductance which accumulates (magnetic field) energy when a current passes through it.
Josephson penetration depth In superconductivity, Josephson penetration depth characterizes the typical length on which an externally-applied magnetic field penetrates into the long Josephson junction. Josephson penetration depth is usually denoted as lambda_J and is given by the following expression (in SI):
