Establishing a process for the fabrication of high-quality HTc SQUIDs
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: High-temperature (HTc) SQUID magnetometers are used in the biomedical field of magnetocardiography (MCG). The use of MCG enables a much earlier diagnosis of potentially dangerous conditions than the ...
The development of a SQUID-based gradiometer
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis presents an attempt at creating a fully functional SQUID for the purposes of a predefined application. The goal of the work is to provide a method of development, primarily utilising the ...
SQUID detected low-field NMR for the evaluation of internal fruit quality
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Assessing the quality of fruit has become vitally important for farmers and growers. With retailers placing ever stricter requirements on fresh produce, growers have to spend a greater amount of time ...
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 ...
