In this paper we consider new and remarkable dynamical behavior displayed by a strongly hysteretic SQUID (Superconducting QUantum Interference device)-a single Josephson weak link enclosed by a thick superconducting ring inductively coupled to a radio frequency (rf) parallel LC tank circuit resonator. Experimentally, we show that in the strongly hysteretic regime this coupled system can display remarkable level structure in its dynamics, quite different to that normally associated with rf driven SQUID ring systems. We demonstrate theoretically that this level structure arises when the SQUID ring responds non-adiabatically to time dependent changes in its potential, i.e. so that the ring no longer stays at or very close to the minimum in this potential as it changes in time. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The critical state of a 1D granular superconductor (modeled as a chain of SQUIDs or, in other words, a 1D Josephson-junction array) is studied on the basis of a system of differential equations for the gauge-invariant phase difference.

    Using a scanning SQUID microscope we have magnetically imaged YBCO films grown upon Rolling-Assisted Biaxial Textured Substrates (RABiTS). The measurements clearly show a strong (about 3 Oe) and non-uniform spontaneous magnetization due to the Ni-based substrate. The YBCO film on a ferromagnetic...
