Abstract

Reproducible high-temperature superconducting multilayer flux transformers were fabricated using chemical mechanical polishing. The measured magnetic field noise of the flip-chip magnetometer based on one such flux transformer with a 9 x 9 mm(2) pickup loop coupled to a bicrystal dc SQUID was 15 fT/Hz(1/2) above 2 kHz. We present an investigation of excess 1/f noise observed at low frequencies and its relationship with the microstructure of the interlayer connections within the flux transformer. The developed high-T-c SQUID magnetometers may be advantageous in ultra-low field magnetic resonance imaging and, with improved low frequency noise, magnetoencephalography applications.
