We report measurements of the switching induced by a rapidly varying magnetic field in a single, small, fully hysteretic Josephson junction. We demonstrate that the variation of the magnetic field, generated by a current step in a control line deposited on the top of the junction, can control the transitions from Josephson branch to the resistive branch and vice versa. The transition from resistive branch to Josephson branch is not trivial for an hysteretic junction. With a suitable choice of the magnetic pulse shape, a "deterministic flip-flop regime" can be achieved in this system.

Abstract

We report measurements of the switching induced by a rapidly varying magnetic field in a single, small, fully hysteretic Josephson junction. We demonstrate that the variation of the magnetic field, generated by a current step in a control line deposited on the top of the junction, can control the transitions from Josephson branch to the resistive branch and vice versa. The transition from resistive branch to Josephson branch is not trivial for an hysteretic junction. With a suitable choice of the magnetic pulse shape, a "deterministic flip-flop regime" can be achieved in this system.
