By using photoresistance measurement, one-dimensional (1D) Josephson junction arrays can be used as primary radio-frequency and microwave detectors. The response can be explained by the microwave-enhanced phase diffusion both in the superconducting phase and charge dominant limits. Free from the screening effect due to mobile charges when the junctions were strongly coupled via the Josephson effect, the 1D array exhibited large microwave response in the charge dominant limit. Used as an in-line detector of guided microwaves, the array produces a negligible change of about in the microwave transmission.
