This chapter will be concerned with electronic applications of resonators and filters. Cavities fabricated from bulk materials are the state of the art for linear accelerators, but will not be treated here. As presented here applications of resonators and filters have grown in the last decade. Although application of HTS filters in wireless systems has not been widely adapted, research and field trials of HTS filters have continued. Other niche applications are occurring. However the applications that have grown the most in the last decade are at low temperatures using LTS superconductors as has been presented here. This field is growing fueled in part by the growth in quantum information systems. A topic for instance that is just emerging is the use of resonators to implement low noise quantum limited amplifiers.
