We are running a new series of weekly online seminars on Applied Superconductivity to give researchers in the field an opportunity to present their work and to strengthen networks in the community.  The events are particularly aimed at giving early career researchers a forum for presenting their work, but we also welcome industry speakers and more experienced guest speakers.

CfAS scientist Martina Esposito, working in the Leek group, developed a Josephson parametric amplifier (JPA) based on a lumped-element LC resonator which includes an array of superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs). The main figures of merit of the device are a bandwidth BW = 15 MHz, a maximum gain G = 21 dB and a 1-dB compression point of -115 dBm. The characterization of the gain of the amplifier is shown in the figure.
