# Fabrication of the Impedance-Matched Josephson Parametric Amplifier and the Study of the Gain Profile

@article{Yang2019FabricationOT, title={Fabrication of the Impedance-Matched Josephson Parametric Amplifier and the Study of the Gain Profile}, author={Rui Yang and Hui Deng}, journal={IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity}, year={2019}, volume={30}, pages={1-6} }

We designed and fabricated an impedance-matched Josephson parametric amplifier (JPA) working in the flux-pump mode for the broadband amplification of microwave signals. A simple fabrication method suitable for a small cleanroom was developed. We also studied the phase response, as well as the gain, as a function of signal frequency and pump power at various pump frequencies. The phase response can be explained with the behavior of the nonlinear Duffing oscillator. The observed decrease of the…
