    The authors study the frequency dependent damping in rapid single flux quantum (RSFQ) circuits as means to reduce dissipation and consequent decoherence in RSFQ/qubit circuits. They show by simulations and experiments that stable RSFQ operation can be achieved by shunting the Josephson junctions...

    The spin-dependent Andreev reflection (AR) tunneling through a ferromagnet double-quantum-dot superconductor (F-DQD-S) is studied using the nonequilibrium Green’s function method. The F-DQD-S is a T-shaped hybrid structure where one of the dots is coupled to the F and S electrodes and the...

    Terahertz radiation from the mesa structures of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ is detected in samples with thin electrodes <100 nm. In samples with thick electrodes ≃400 nm, neither radiations nor voltage jumps in current-voltage characteristics are detected. This suggests that the thin electrode...

    A single-electron trap built with two superconductor-insulator-normal metal tunnel junctions and coupled to a readout SINIS-type single-electron transistor A (SET A) was studied in a photon detection regime. As a source of photon irradiation, we used an operating second SINIS-type SET B...
