Model CPX for superconducting microwave device research

A new paper slated for publication in the IEEE Journal of the Electron Devices Society references the utility of a Lake Shore cryogenic probe station when performing superconducting microwave device characterization.

The paper, authored by Robert R. Benoit of the U.S. Army Research Labs and N. Scott Barker of the University of Virginia, details the development of a MEMS-based, frequency-tunable resonator for superconducting cryogenic circuits.

In fabricating this device, the authors integrated a niobium (Nb) superconducting tunable microstrip gap resonator with gold (Au) RF MEMS DC-contact switches for a resonator tuned for four frequencies over a 12 – 15 GHz bandwidth.
