New book on SQUID Readout Electronics

Hands-on guide for scientists and engineers on how to use SQUID technology

SQUID Readout Electronics and Magnetometric Systems for Practical Applications

Authors: Yi Zhang, Hui Dong, Hans-Joachim Krause. Guofeng Zhang, Xiaoming Xie

This book documents the joint achievements accomplished in the cooperation between Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology (SIMIT) and Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ) in the field of superconducting electronics. It focuses on the readout electronics of SQUID systems, particularly the advantages and disadvantages of the various systems. It helps materials scientists, physicists and engineers to overcome the major know-how barriers in order to understand the important challenges and to design practical SQUID systems with a focus on simplicity and robustness.

This practical book covers SQUID (superconducting quantum interference device) readout electronics and magnetometric systems. It illustrates their many practical applications in measuring extremely subtle magnetic fields and shows how the technique is developing into an enabling technology for many applications, such as biomagnetic imaging and geophysical prospecting. Clear and comprehensive, the book builds a bridge for scientists and engineers to fill in potential know-how gaps for all who work on SQUID systems and their practical applications. It helps make key words like readout electronics, flux quantization, Josephson effects, and noise contributions completely understandable to all who design and use simple and robust SQUID systems.
