—We have developed a 1:30000 winding ratio cryogenic current comparator (CCC) for measurement of small currents, e.g., generated by a single electron transport device. A dedicated low-noise SQUID is used for the readout, which allows reaching a sensitivity close to ideal, that is without loss of sensitivity in the flux transformer coupling the CCC and the(More)
—The calculation of inductances of superconducting structures like the cryogenic current comparator (CCC) is not straightforward due to image effects and unknown current distributions. By treating the problem as a magnetic circuit, an approximate analytical expression for the self-inductance of the shielded CCC is obtained. This formula can be used to(More)
