Here we present calculations of the critical current of dc SQUID based on Josephson junction with unconventional current-phase relation. We analyzed two cases of current-phase relation of junction: with anharmonic and Majorana term. It is shown that the changing of the critical current in the case of the small geometrical inductance of dc SQUID based on Josephson junctions with unconventional current-phase relation is determined by the amplitude of the second term in current-phase relation, the geometrical inductance of dc SQUID and external magnetic field. In the case of the high inductance of dc SQUID unconventional terms can be ignored.
Key words: dc SQUID, current-phase relation, anharmonic and Majorana terms.
