Abstract

Application of Josephson admittance spectroscopy for the spectral analysis of a broad-band log-periodic antenna was demonstrated at the frequency range from 50 to 700 GHz. A real part of the antenna admittance was reconstructed as a function of the frequency, when the antenna was connected to a Josephson junction. Small-scale features were observed on this dependence. They demonstrated a periodicity in the logarithmic frequency scale and were related to the antenna resonances.
