1 Prototype SQUID with open box and readout cable.
2 A prototype of a Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID). The SQUIDS are used the monitor the electro-magnetic fields surrounding the spinning gyroscopes.
3 The inner workings of a early Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID). The SQUIDS are used to monitor the electro-magnetic fields surrounding the spinning gyroscopes.
4 The fully integrated Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) on the probe.
5 Ming Luo carefully places the cover plate over the inner workings of a SQUID during probe integration.
6 An electronics box used to test and run the SQUIDs (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device ).
7 A high magnification micrograph of a SQUID microchip.
8 The completed probe C. The SQUID boxes can be seen on the left and right sides. The metallic lines are superdconducting lines that run to the SQUIDs. The white plastic tubing on the bottom supplies the spin-up helium to the gyroscopes.
9 This is an open prototype of a SQUID. (Super-conducting Quantum Interference Device) These devices are used to track the infintesimal changes in the gyroscope that would indicate a change in space-time.
