Abstract

Delay lines which provide a variable delay are useful in many types of circuits, including fast measurement circuits. In the Josephson device technology, such a delay line having a variable delay depending upon the application of a quasi-DC bias is very useful. This type of delay line is provided in an on-chip embodiment in which part of the transmission line inductance is replaced with Josephson devices.
