Abstract

In this paper we present an overview of the microwave properties of a surface electromagnetic wave resonator (SEWR) made on the basis of a superconducting film, and also consider possible applications of such resonators to create various microwave devices. Features of such a SEWR are the simplicity of its design (such a resonator, in fact, can be just the superconducting film itself on a dielectric substrate); a large amplitude of microwave electromagnetic field on the surface of the resonator’s superconducting film, which allows one to organize intense interaction of this field with the superconductor; the possibility of synchronous operation of integrated superconducting elements, embedded in the resonator, under the action of its microwave field. The review is based on our works published since 2000 and discusses the possible applications of superconduct-ing SEWRs to create a new class of microwave filters, microwave signal generators and detectors, and other devices based on Josephson junctions.

Key words: high-temperature superconductivity, surface electromagnetic wave, microwave resonator, Josephson junction.
