Modified geometry (MG) devices, Nb/AI/Nb/AI-AIOx-AI-AIOx-AI/Nb/AI/Nb, have been fabricated and investigated in comparison with the basic geometry (BG) double-barrier Nb/AI-A1Ox-AI'-AIOx-AI/Nb devices. The enhancement of the critical temperature in the AI' film is found to be weaker for the MG devices as compared with the BG devices at temperatures near T=4.2 K but stronger at low T. Indication of an enhancement of dc Josephson critical current density, jc, at bias voltage V≠0 as compared with jc(V=0) has been observed in the MG devices for the first time.
