  • Overview

    The purpose of this task is to provide technical and/or analytical support in the field of electrical engineering or mechanical engineering for the Superconducting Quantum Electromagnetic Sensor project. The purpose of this project is to characterize a series of Superconducting Quantum Interference Device Arrays (SQA) in terms of their electrical and transport properties to advance sensor capabilities.


    Conduct transport and electrical properties measurements in SQAs at temperatures between 4 < T < 120 K. The methods of measurements shall consist of:
    - Providing support on sample preparation, setting up experiments and monitoring equipment in the laboratory,
    - Measuring the current vs. voltage characteristics of SQAs at different temperatures and applied currents,
    - Measuring voltage vs magnetic field characteristics as a function of the bias field, temperature and critical current.

    - Analyzing the data to determine the critical current of the devices.

    -Advance the existing data acquisition software and analyzes to automate the data collection process.
