2 Outline Why superconducting electronics? Tunnel junction devices and sensors One junction: STJ detectors Two junctions: SQUIDs ~10000 junctions: Quantum voltage standards junctions: Circuits for manipulation of quantum bits 1-4 junctions: Electron cooling with SINIS-junctions Superconducting transition detectors Nb and NbN microbolometers for THz Room temperature readout Towards video-rate imaging X-ray transition-edge calorimeters and their readout Conclusions Panu Helistö: Superconducting electronics at VTT 2

3 Why superconducting electronics and devices 1. Benefit of low operation temperature low thermal noise - improved performance 2. Special properties of tunnel junctions unparalleled resolution as sensor generation of absolute quantum voltage fast, low noise analog and digital electronics applications in future quantum computing(?) cryocooling at low temperatures 3. Steep superconducting transition bolometric/calorimetric radiation detectors utilizing strong electrothermal feedback in the transition 4. But - is there any near-future commercial potential? 5. Cryocooling needed - messy and impractical? Panu Helistö: Superconducting electronics at VTT 3

4 Cryocooling Cooling allows for substantial increase in performance Necessary for superconductivity But - is it industrially feasible? Liquid helium handling - only for physicists? Commercial turn-key 4 K cryocoolers available Reliable - such coolers have run for years with no problems in tropical conditions for mining applications Price: k => 4 K not a problem!

Electronic Circuits. Series resistance adds so that the overall resistance is the sum of the two individual resistances: R total = R 1 + R 2 = 1 R 1 Electronic Circuits We have already looked at one simple circuit, the voltage divider. In order to understand the operation of audio equipment, we need to look a little deeper in to electronic circuits.
