Multitone quantum simulations of saturating tunnel junction mixers

Abstract:
A theoretical technique was developed for simulating the quantum-mechanical multitone behavior of superconducting tunnel junction circuits. The procedure was based on a full quantum-mechanical description of photon-assisted tunneling. It was expected to be used to model saturation in submillimeter-wave SIS mixers. SIS mixers were used extensively in submillimeter-wave astronomy.
