Physics Colloquium (Franklin Miller, Jr. Lecture Hall, RBH 109)  Lei Yu, School of Materials, Arizona State University. Title: "Conductive Barrier Josephson Junctions for 100 ghz+ Superconductive Circuit Applications" Abstract: Like transistors to CMOS technology, Josephson junctions are the fundamental devices of superconductive circuit technology. Despite the requirement of cryogenic cooling, rapid single flux quantum (RSFQ) logic based superconductive circuits promise high-speed, low power, and uncomplicated circuit design that can not be matched by any known semiconductor based circuits. RSFQ has strong potential for large-scale and high-performance applications operate at 100 GHz or beyond, such as microprocessors and communication systems. However, material and process related issues plagued the design of Josephson junctions that used in current industry. As a result, RSFQ technology is still far away from the speed and integration levels it promised to deliver. We predicted that junction with near metal-insulator transition material as barrier can have characteristics that are ideal for the next generation of RSFQ circuits. I will report on both experimental and theoretical investigations that aimed towards our goal of 1.) developing new junctions as drop-in replacements for tunnel junctions in the existing RSFQ circuit process. 2) understanding the fundamental physical principles regarding the transport properties of near metal-insulator transition barrier junctions, especially those related to high speed. Ideally, we intended to establish a set of principles governing the design of all conductive barrier Josephson junctions. Reception to follow in Hayes Hall Lobby.
