Heavy ion detection experiments were carried out with superconducting series array tunnel junctions. 40Ar beam from linear accelerator was introduced to a cryostat and stopped in a substrate on which series array tunnel junctions were fabricated. An energy resolution of 4.2% was obtained for 191 MeV 40 Ar, but linearity proved poor for energy ranges from 136 MeV to 191 MeV.
