The fabrication of PBCO buffered step-edge Josephson junctions
A major challenge in the design and operation of High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) devices is the fabrication of reproducible Josephson junctions with good IcRn products. One objective of this thesis was to fabricate ...
Parameter extraction of superconducting integrated circuits
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
Integrated circuits are expensive to manufacture and it is important to verify the correct operation of a circuit before fabrication. Efficient, though accurate, parameter extraction of post-layout designs are required ...
A reproducible design and manufacturing process for SQUID magnetometers
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-03)
A process was developed to design and manufacture a dc SQUID magnetometer. Superconductor theory is given as a foundation to explain the Josephson junction. This knowledge is applied to explain the ideal and practical ...
