We study one-dimensional Josephson junction arrays (JJAs) in epitaxial Al/InAs/InGaAs heterostructures. Our measurement circuit allows us to measure simultaneously the Josephson inductance and the DC transport characteristics. Both are measured as a function of the magnetic field vector, temperature, gate voltage or direct current. We find that the critical current determined at the equilibrium from the Josephson inductance is significantly larger than the transport critical current. This latter is, in fact, determined by the weakest link, whereas the Josephson inductance is insensitive to defects in the JJA. Interestingly, the measurement of the Josephson inductance makes it possible to directly reconstruct part of the current-phase relation, and therefore deviations from the sinusoidal dependence. The present method offers a new approach to investigate the nature of topological Josephson junctions.
