In this report the performance of a microwave-pumped SQUID with niobium, tantalum, and vanadium point-contact junctions is discussed. These SQUID's were developed for measurements of RF attenuation in the frequency range 0-1 GHz. The equipment described here is controlled by a desktop computer and can be used to measure attenuation up to 60 dB. A simple… (More)
