Theory of the Josephson Junction Laser

Physical Review Letters American Physical Society 121 (2018)

SH Simon, NR Cooper

We develop an analytic theory for the recently demonstrated Josephson Junction laser (Science 355, 939, 2017). By working in the time-domain representation (rather than the frequency-domain) a single non-linear equation is obtained for the dynamics of the device, which is fully solvable in some regimes of operation. The nonlinear drive is seen to lead to mode-locked output, with a period set by the round-trip time of the resonant cavity.
