Abstract

Current control in most superconducting circuits is achieved by the cryotron, which makes use of the resistance parameter for this purpose. However, since, by their very nature, cryogenic circuits are basically devoid of all resistance, inductance is often used to effect a desired current distribution. This is accomplished by designing the branches of a network with certain relative inductances ; an applied circuit current then splits among the branches in inverse proportion to the inductances.
