Abstract:

This report describes the design and measured performance of a superconducting Josephson array oscillator. An array of Josephson junctions was fabricated to function as a 12 to 18-GHz frequency agile voltage controlled oscillator for application in analog-to-digital conversion. At a temperature of 4.2 K, measured peak RF power was approximately -84 dBm in a 300 kHz bandwidth. This work was performed in support of MITRE Sponsored Research project 91080, Superconducting Analog-to-Digital Converters. Author
