Abstract

It is well known that in Josephson latching logic networks power dissipation of the AC power supply could be significantly reduced if a third harmonic waveform of proper amplitude and phase were added. Unfortunately, it is difficult, if not impossible, to maintain the clean third harmonic waveshape through a transformer tree system because of different phase shifts of fundamental and third harmonics.
