Experiments on phase retrapping in ϕ Josephson junctions — •Edward Goldobin1, Rosina Menditto1, Martin Weides2, Dieter Koelle1, and Reinhold Kleiner11University of Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany — 2KIT, Karlsruhe, Germany

We experimentally study retrapping of the phase in ϕ Josephson junctions (JJs) based on superconductor-insulator-ferromagnet-superconductor (SIFS) 0-π heterostructures[1,2]. Such ϕ JJs have a doubly degenerate ground state (two potential energy wells) with the phases ±ϕ (0<ϕ<π). We study in which of these two wells the phase is trapped upon return of the JJ to the zero voltage state. We find that for T>T*≈2.4 K (large damping) the phase is always trapped in the +ϕ state. However, for lower T (small damping) the trapping result is a statistical mixture of the +ϕ and the −ϕ states due to the presence of noise in the system. The probability for retrapping to the −ϕ state increases and oscillates as T is decreasing below T*, reaching a saturation value of ∼ 30% for T1.2 K. These results are compared with theory[3], which predicts the butterfly effect in the limit of low damping.
