Research objectives and content The objectives of the project are: (1) Optimisation of High Temperature Semiconductors (HTS) dc- Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) device structures by submicron photolithography and ion beam etching in order to tune the critical current and enhance the dynamic resistance for application of APF.
The company's MCG system is enabled through the use of an array of Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDS) and has received FDA clearance, the CE Mark for Europe and approved for sale in Russia and China.
In this research paper, the scientists show that a magnetic field-pulsed microwave transmission line containing an array of superconducting quantum interference devices, or SQUIDs, not only reproduces physics analogous to that of a radiating black hole, but does so in a system where the high energy and quantum mechanical properties are well understood and can be directly controlled in the laboratory.
Extraordinarily sensitive to changes in electromagnetic fields, such junctions lie at the heart of SQUIDs, superconducting quantum interference devices used for mapping tiny variations in magnetic fields, whether in geological formations or in the human brain.
New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Breast Cancer Research has highlighted a new and more sensitive method using tumor-targeted magnetic nanoprobes and superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) sensors, the core of Senior Scientific's technology.
