    We present a measurement of the relaxation and the dephasing times in a flux qubit. In order to improve coherence of the qubit, two external parameters were optimized: the applied flux through the qubit loop and the bias current of the SQUID which serves as a readout device of the qubit state....

    We present an experimental study of the magnetic flux dependence of the critical current of a balanced superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) with three Josephson junctions in parallel.

    We have fabricated a series array of 280 superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) using YBa2Cu3O7-δ thin film ion damage Josephson junctions. The SQUID loop areas were tapered exponentially so that the response of the current-biased array to magnetic field is a single voltage...

    The theory of the bulk-SQUID effect in discrete superconductors is constructed for the first time. It is shown that the bulk-SQUID effect emerges in the system of 2D intrinsically stochastic multijunction SQUID (i.e., with random values of critical currents of the junctions, injection currents,...

    Measurements are presented of the back action of a low noise commercial dc superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) on a strongly-coupled high-quality factor (Qapprox. 10[sup 6]) electrical LC resonator operating at audio frequencies (approx. 1 kHz). The back-action effect, due to the...

    The flux states of a rf superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) can be used to investigate macroscopic quantum effects, the most challenging of which is the detection of quantum coherent oscillations, and are promising candidates for the implementation of quantum computing. The use...
