Paper Abstract

The effects of radio frequency radiation on the dc SQUID are examined. Simulations show how the shape of the SQUID transfer characteristic is distorted by radio frequency interference (RFI). How this affects three commonly used SQUID modulation methods is discussed, and the results explain why we experimentally observe the bias current reversing readout method to be the least susceptible to RFI. The commonly seen increase in the low frequency flux noise power spectrum of dc SQUIDs in unshielded environments is also explained.
