Nitrogen ion implantation was used to induce local modifications of the superconductive properties of the niobium base layer in Nb-NbO x-Pb Josephson tunnel junctions. A local depression of the niobium critical temperature and energy gap turns into a nonuniform critical current density profile Jc in the sample. Different profiles have been obtained by modifying the implanted region geometry and the nitrogen ion concentration. The external magnetic field dependence of the maximum DC Josephson current has been used as a diagnostic tool to obtain a preliminary characterization of the shape of Jc in a small sample. Preliminary investigations on long junctions are also reported
