Interest in superconducting microresonators has grown dramatically over the past decade. Resonator performance has improved substantially through the use of improved geometries and materials as well as a better understanding of the underlying physics. These advances have led to the adoption of superconducting microresonators in a large number of low-temperature experiments and applications. This review outlines these developments, with particular attention given to the use of superconducting microresonators as detectors.

Additional Information:© 2012 by Annual Reviews. It has been enormously enjoyable to watch this field develop over the past decade. I am particularly grateful to my JPL colleagues and collaborators, especially Rick Leduc and Peter Day, without whom nothing would have happened. I have learned a tremendous amount from my students and postdocs, past and present: Jiansong Gao, Shwetank Kumar, Ben Mazin, Chris McKenney, Tony Mrockowski, Omid Noroozian, Erik Shirokoff, Loren Swenson, and Tasos Vayonakis. I have benefitted greatly from stimulating and useful conversations with a number of scientists, including Rami Barends, Jochem Baselmans, Simon Doyle, Jason Glenn, Sunil Golwala, Kent Irwin, Teun Klapwijk, Konrad Lehnert, John Martinis, Phil Mauskopf, Harvey Moseley, Steve Padin, David Pappas, Dan Prober, Bernard Sadoulet, Rob Schoelkopf, and Stafford Withington. The Caltech/JPL devices mentioned here were fabricated at the JPL Microdevices Laboratory. JPL is operated by the California Institute of Technology, under a contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
