Emerging Measurement Techniques For Studies Of Mesoscopic Superconductors
Experimental research on mesoscopic systems puts high demands on the measurement infrastructure, including measurement system with associated sample preparation, experimental design, measurement electronics, and data collection. Successful experiments require both the ability to manufacture small samples and to successfully and accurately study their novel properties. Here, we discuss some aspects and recent advancements of general measurement techniques that should benefit several characterization methods such as thermodynamic, magnetic, and transport studies of mesoscopic superconductors.
