Abstract

Current-voltage characteristics of current-biased Josephson junctions with a phase-dependent dissipative current σ1Vcos have been calculated in the presence of thermal noise. Measurements on superconducting weak links indicate the existence of such a phase-dependent dissipative current of the same magnitude and sign observed in tunnel junctions.
