  1. 1. High-frequency phenomena in small Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x intrinsic Josephson junctions

    Author : Holger Motzkau; Vladimir M. Krasnov; Reinhold Kleiner; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; high-temperature superconductivity; Bi-2212; cuprates; intrinsic Josephson junctions; intrinsic tunneling; fluxons; flux-flow oscillator; THz-emission; cavity resonances; polaritons; electrical doping; micro nano-fabrication; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the tunneling between individual atomic layers in structures of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x based high-temperature superconductors are experimentally studied employing the intrinsic Josephson effect. A special attention is paid to the fabrication of small mesa structures using micro and nanofabrication techniques. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bi2212 intrinsic Josephson junctions, fabrication and high frequency properties

    Author : Mattias Torstensson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : intrinsic Joule heating; Shapiro steps; in plane critical current; Bi2212; high temperature superconductors; intrinsic Josephson junctions;

    Abstract : The objective for this work was to investigate the high-frequency properties of Bi2212 intrinsic Josephson junctions (IJJ’s). Particularly, the possibility to reach the THz range with a SIS mixer is theoretically promising due to the high energy gap of Bi2212. READ MORE

    Abstract : In this thesis, intrinsic Josephson junctions, naturally formed in the strongly anisotropic high-temperature superconductor Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 (Bi-2212), are studied experimentally. For this purpose, small mesa structures are fabricated on the surface of single crystals using micro- and nano-fabrication tools, focused ion beam is used to reduce the area of the mesa-structures down to ≈ 1 × 1 μm2.
