Abstract: A fundamental property of wave propagation is Anderson localization, which affects the transfer of information, energy, mass, and charge in disordered media. This localization can manifest itself via, e.g., the metal-insulator transition. We exactly map the behavior of a quantum particle moving in a potential with correlated disorder to teh sub-terahertz wave propagation in either Josephson chaines or superconducting multilayers. When the Josephson junction parameters vary randomly, the sub-THz electromagnetic waves cannot propagate through these Josephson structures due to localization. For parameter variations with long-range correlations, we predict sharp transitions from transparent to reflective frequency regions for Josephson plasma waves. With appropriate choices of the correlation function, frequency windows with targeted or designed transparencies for THz or sub-THz electromagnetic waves could be achieved. This could be useful for tailoring the electromagnetic wave spectrum of Josephson arrays within the THz frequency range, which is important for applications in physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology, and medicine.
