ABSTRACT
From measurements of additive and back action noise, we estimate the noise temperature of a two-stage superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) amplifier developed for the acoustic wide-band gravitational wave detectors of the next generation. The minimum noise temperature evaluated at 8.9 kHz and T≤0.3 K is about 4 μK and corresponds to 10 times the quantum-limited noise temperature. As the high-Q electrical resonator used for the back action noise measurements behaves in many respects like the input load constituted by an acoustic gravitational wave detector, this SQUID amplifier is expected to keep the same noise performance once installed on the detector.
