SRI 6011 Josephson Arbitrary Waveform Synthesizer


SRI 6011

The Josephson arbitrary waveform synthesizer (JAWS) is an instrument that synthesizes ac voltage waveforms and dc voltages whose metrological accuracy results from pulse biasing thousands of series-connected superconducting Josephson junctions into their identical quantum states.Technical Contact: paul.dresselhaus [at] (Paul Dresselhaus)
