Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a new analysis and numerical study of a DC superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) with a damped loop inductance. We find a previously unreported regime of voltage-flux bistability due to the damping resistor when the SQUID is biased below the zero-field critical current. We determine the region where this phenomenon can be found in the parameter space defined by the damping resistance and the inductance parameter.
