We discuss the theory of linear and non-linear spectroscopy of an rf-SQUID coupled to a Josephson spectrometer. Recent experimental measurements on this system have shown a strongly non-linear absorption lineshape, whose current peak maximum undergoes a forward-backward bending transition depending on the value of the rf-SQUID phase... We show that this transition can be qualitatively understood by mapping the dynamics of the driven rf-SQUID onto a generalized Duffing oscillator, with tunable drive and non-linearity, undergoing a bifurcation. Finally we show that in order to quantitatively reproduce the experimental data reported in arXiv:2106.02632, it is crucial to include the feedback from the load-line, leading to an additional source of non-linearity. read more
