Josephson Effect
If a thin insulating barrier between two superconductors (a Josephson junction) is cooled in liquid helium to 4.2 K and exposed to electromagnetic radiation of frequency, f, then the DC voltage across the junction VJ assumes discrete values given by VJ = nfKJ where n is an integer which identifies a constant voltage step in a current-voltage characteristic and KJ is the Josephson constant. The Josephson constant is believed to be equal to the ratio h/2e where h is Planck’s constant and e is the electronic charge. In January 1990 a value of 483597.9 GHz/V was adopted for the Josephson constant in SI units with a relative 1s uncertainty of ± 0.4 ppm.

Voltage standards based on arrays of Josephson junctions have become increasingly widespread in recent years. These arrays, which consist of several thousand individual junctions, can now be used to measure voltage standards directly at the 1 V and 10 V level.
