Nonlinear Dynamics


We study the chaotic dynamics of a parametrically modulated Josephson junction with quadratic damping. The Melnikov chaotic criteria are presented. When the perturbation conditions cannot be satisfied, numerical simulations demonstrate that the system can step into chaos via a quasi-periodic route with the increasing of the dc component of the modulation. However, it is numerically demonstrated that adding a feedback to the system can effectively suppress the chaos.
