Taur, Y., and A.R. Kerr, 1978: Low-noise Josephson mixers at 115 GHz using recyclable point contacts. Appl. Phys. Lett., 32, 775-777, doi:10.1063/1.89891.

Thermally recyclable Nb point-contact Josephson junctions are investigated as low-noise mixers with an external local oscillator at 115 GHz. The best single sideband mixer noise temperature achieved is 140 (±20) K with a (SSB) conversion loss of 2.4 (±0.5) dB. Such rugged junctions are suitable for use in practical receivers and should give unprecedented sensitivity at the shorter millimeter wavelengths.
