We report some leading research on superconducting devices in Taiwan. Research includes thin films, Josephson junctions, junction arrays and resonators etc. In device physics characteristics of Josephson junctions, junction array, and SQUIDs are reported. Applications of SQUIDs include: (1) studies of brain activities (magnetoencenphalogram) using multichannel low Tc SQUIDs system: (2) detection of weak magnetic fields (magnetocardiograph, etc.) using high-Tc SQUIDs; (3) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of deep flaws using high-Tc SQUIDs. Research projects in the future in our group are briefly reported.
