A theoretical study of small superconductor-normal-superconductor Josephson junctions shows that while low-critical-current junctions do obey the resistively shunted junction model (RSJM), large-current-density junctions do not and are thereby much less sensitive to strong magnetic fields than the RSJM equivalent.
