Multiturn flux transformers for rf SQUID magnetometers
Abstract:This work showed experimentally how the planar multiturn input coil of a flux transformer could be integrated with a coplanar resonator while still permitting one to couple radio frequency (rf) signals to an rf SQUID. A new layout of a multiturn flux transformer with one pickup loop and two input coils, one single turn and one multiturn, has been fabricated on (001) substrates and evaluated. A planar double-hole washer SQUID was inductively coupled to the two separate input coils via a flip chip configuration. With this layout the best magnetometer showed magnetic field white noise of at 77 K in a magnetically shielded surrounding.
