Correction to: Communications Physics, published online 16 March 2020.

The original version of the article contained an error in the definition of the reduced frequency in Eq. 2, where a factor \(2\pi\) was missing from the denominator. The correct definition of the reduced frequency is:

$${\Omega} = \frac{{{\Phi}_{0} \nu_{r}f}}{{2\pi R I_{c}}}$$

In addition, following the modifications to Eq. 2, the reported value of \({\Omega} = 0.76\) on page 4, left hand column, 3rd paragraph, 3rd line from the top, and page 4, right hand column, 2nd paragraph, 2nd line from the bottom in the article, has been corrected to the value \({\Omega} = 0.12\).

The Supplementary Information has also been corrected in order to rescale Supplementary Fig. 5a axis of \(\Omega\) by factor \(1/2\pi\), and in Equation S9, a factor \(2\pi\) in the denominator was added.

The Peer Review File associated with this Article was updated shortly after publication to redact from the authors’ point-by-point response a description of unpublished work describing the conditions required to observe Shapiro steps within a noise free resistively shunted Josephson junction model.

These errors have been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article and the Supplementary Information documents.
