Designing Large Two-Dimensional Arrays of Josephson Junctions for RF Magnetic Field Detection

Abstract

This paper discusses improved design of two-dimensional (2D) arrays, potentially pushing the present state of the art of the high-Tc (and low-Tc) magnetic field detectors to a larger scale, i.e., higher sensitivity. We propose a two-plate geometry for parallel (and two-dimensional) arrays of Josephson junctions (JJs) for application in magnetic field detection. The arrays can be realized either by integration in the same substrate with a multilayer technology or on two different substrates. In the latter case, the substrates can be assembled in a flip-chip or piggyback configuration. A suggestion would be to divide a 2D array in two (equal) parts and to distribute each part on a different layer, one above the other. We model the current distribution in arrays connected in series so that the bias current flowing through the device flows in opposite direction in the layers. We demonstrate that this geometry greatly improves the uniformity of the bias current distribution across the width of the array, thereby restoring the critical current and, in principle, improving the Josephson array response. From the model, we conclude that the alignment of the arrays is not critical and that the realization of the devices requires only conventional techniques.
