In science:

IS (ϕ) is known as (super-)current-phase relationship or CPR, the dimensionless term f (ϕ) as normalized CPR.
Supercurrent-phase relationship of a Nb/InAs(2DES)/Nb Josephson junction in overlapping geometry
These idealized model systems serve to understand the basic mechanisms leading to a deviation of the CPR from the well-known Josephson relation (Eq. 2), which we encounter also in complex real-world junctions, though mixed with secondary processes.
Supercurrent-phase relationship of a Nb/InAs(2DES)/Nb Josephson junction in overlapping geometry
CPR measurements by a flux-detecting method in this system9 agreed with the predicted changes in the position of the maximum and curve shape.
Supercurrent-phase relationship of a Nb/InAs(2DES)/Nb Josephson junction in overlapping geometry
The InAs surface is cleaned in situ using low-energy Ar etching prior to the deposition of a 100 nm thick Nb film by magnetron sputtering, yielding the highly transparent interfaces required to observe deviations from sinusoidal CPR.
Supercurrent-phase relationship of a Nb/InAs(2DES)/Nb Josephson junction in overlapping geometry
The CPR of the Josephson junction is determined by an inductive rf frequency method requiring no galvanic contacts to the sample, thus reducing noise.
