The spectral density S(Φ)(f) = A(2)/(f/1 Hz)(α) of magnetic flux noise in ten dc superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) with systematically varied geometries shows that α increases as the temperature is lowered; in so doing, each spectrum pivots about a nearly constant frequency. The mean-square flux noise, inferred by integrating the power(More)
The voltage as a function of applied magnetic field (V-B) was calculated for arrays of superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) connected in series. Comparisons were made between arrays of equal area SQUIDs and superconducting quantum interference filters (SQIFs). The areas for the SQIFs were varied exponentially, so that the V-B had a sharp(More)

We demonstrate a spurious contribution to low-frequency critical current noise in Josephson junctions—normally attributed to charge trapping in the barrier—arising from temperature instabilities inherent in cryogenic systems. These temperature fluctuations modify the critical current via its temperature dependence. Cross-correlations between measured(More)
Very large scale integration of Josephson junctions in a two-dimensional series-parallel array has been achieved by ion irradiating a YBa(2)Cu(3)O(7-delta) film through slits in a nanofabricated mask created with electron beam lithography and reactive ion etching. The mask consisted of 15820 high aspect ratio (20:1), 35 nm wide slits that restricted the(More)
