Abstract

Numerical simulations have been used to investigate the dynamics of a pair of resistively linked Josephson junctions with ac bias. For suitable choices of parameters, the chaotic states of the two junctions become intermittently synchronized. Intervals of synchronization are interleaved between bursts of desynchronized activity. The distributions of these laminar times and their dependence on the coupling strength are determined. The role of phase winding in the definition of synchronization intervals is considered.
