Method and apparatus for processing squid
A method and apparatus for processing squid whereby a squid is placed on a spike and is conveyed past a backstructure surface causing the squid to spin about the spike, the friction against the outside and the inside of the squid tube body causing the loosening and the removal of parts of the squid attached to the tube body, thereby cleaning the squid. The cleaning action can be enhanced by spraying the squid with water or air, and by drawing material away from the squid with a suction device.

Scanning squid microscope with improved spatial resolution
A scanning SQUID microscope (30) for acquiring spatially resolved images of physical properties of an object (84) includes a SQUID sensor (56) arranged in perpendicular to the plane of the object under investigation for detecting tangential component of the magnetic field generated by the object. During scanning of the SQUID sensor (56) over the object (84) under investigation, the position signal from a position interpreting unit, as well as relevant output signals from the SQUID sensor (56) are processed by a processing unit which derives from the data, spatially resolved images of the physical properties of the object. The specific orientation of the SQUID sensor (56) with respect to the plane of the object (84) permits an enlarged area of the SQUID chip on which the modulation and feedback line (100) can be fabricated in the same technological process with the SQUID sensor. Additionally, larger contact pads (120) afforded provide for lower contact resistance and ease in forming contact with bias and read-out wires.

Rf squid with tank circuit
The invention relates to an r.f. SQUID with a tank circuit. It is the aim of the invention to provide such a SQUID in which the variability and reliability of the connection betwen the SQUID and the tank circuit are improved over prior art SQUIDs without adversely affecting the resonant frequency and quality of the SQUID. To this end, for the construction of the tank circuit there is a metallic conductive layer on a substrate which is structured in such a way that at least one lateral flat capacitive structure is bonded to a lateral elongated inductive structure. Such a tank circuit produced by the planar layer method provides the desired variability in the connection of the tank circuit to the SQUID by the flip-chip method on a separate substrate, with distance means.
