The fitting curve: Ip = 24 nA, ES/h = 4.9 GHz
The result is well reproducible
Three identical samples show similar behaviorwith energies 4.9, 5.8 and 9.5 GHz
After “annealing” at room temperature InOxbecomes more superconducting.
The samples were loaded three times with intervals about 1 months. Es is decreased with time.
