I hope all of you are doing fine. Last week we (Thilo, Floriana, Sergey, and me) attended the 2021Virtual MRS Spring Meeting and Exhibit. For the session titled NM02: Superconducting Materials and Applications, both Thilo and I gave ten-minute presentations on our recent measurements on Ti-based hybrid devices. Thilo mainly discussed the RF measurements we performed S-TI-S junction based RF-SQUID coupled to microwave read-out resonators, and I talked about extracting the current phase relation of such nanoribbon based junctions using an asymmetric DC-SQUID layout.
Over things went well, and it was good to hear about what other people are doing with bismuth-based materials.
