Homework Help: SQUID magnetometers

  1. Jun 14, 2009 #1

    Does anyone out there know of any good resources on the net that explain how SQUID's (Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices) work? I've seen a few textbooks, but they tend to do a pretty average job of things. Perhaps there are some decent lecture notes out there or something that somebody knows of??

    Well, you could look at Hyperphysics:

    but to get an full understanding, I suggest van Duzer's Principles of Superconductive Devices which is the standard text on this. Tinkham's book Intro to Superconductivity is also excellent and, as I recall, it covers SQUID's.
