Interaction between two Josephson junctions and a microstrip resonator is investigated using a resonator shunted junction (RLCSJ) model. A sharp current step resulting from coupling with the resonator is observed in simulated I-V characteristics. There is strong phase-locking and decreasing of dynamic resistance at the current step. We design and fabricate two types of Josephson array oscillators using these effects to obtain stable phase locking and narrow linewidth for the oscillation. The fabricated oscillators are formed with nine shunted Nb/AlOx/Nb tunnel junctions and Nb microstrip resonators. The power of the oscillator delivered to the load resistor was estimated to be about 3.6 /spl mu/W at 330 GHz. A composite linewidth of the oscillators is also measured at about 19 MHz at 4.2 K using two oscillators with a log-periodic antenna and a SIS detector.
