Abstract

The spectral density of the voltage noise has been measured in current-biased resistively shunted Josephson junctions in which quantum corrections to the noise are expected to be important. The experimental data are in excellent agreement with theoretical pretions, demonstrating clearly the contribution of zero-point fluctuations that are generated in the shunt at frequencies near the Josephson frequency and mixed down to the measurement frequency.
