characteristic under microwave irradiation at different frequencies: (1) without microwave irradiation, (2) 10 GHz, (3) 12 GHz, (4) 13 GHz, and (5) 18 GHz. Each curve is shifted by to the previous. Shapiro steps at the 12 GHz curve are marked by arrows. The index of each step denotes multiples of .

Critical current vs microwave voltage at 12 GHz. The solid line denotes a Bessel simulation with a subjacent exponential decay. This exponential behavior is probably thermally induced. The fit parameters are , , and with an excess current at zero microwave amplitude. The inset shows some characteristics at different microwave voltages. Each curve is shifted by to the previous.
