Abstract

In this thesis the room temperature characteristics of Josephson junctions are studied. More specifically, how the room temperature resistance of the junction depends on oxidation parameters, measurement time, and temperature. The method used to develop the junctions is called shadow evaporation. All room temperature resistance values were measured on the probe station. In the figures one can observe that the room temperature resistance increased as a result of more oxygen exposure, as measurement time increased, and as temperature decreased
