This work summarizes many successful experiments using superfluid
He-3 weak links to probe different Josephson effects, the
culmination being the development of the superfluid He-3 dc SQUID.
It is the hope of the author that these measurements are just the
beginning of a long line of important experiments using superfluid
helium to enhance our understanding of Josephson effects and
quantum systems. The introductory chapter discusses motivations for
studying Josephson Effects and a basic review of superfluids.
Chapter 2 discusses tunneling and derives the Josephson relations
for any weakly coupled quantum system. Chapter 3 focuses on
superfluid helium weak links, a brief history of different
experiments and a review of hydrodynamic circuits. Chapter 4
describes the experiments done at Berkeley using a single
superfluid He-3 weak link array. Chapter 5 focuses on the
theoretical aspects involved in the observation of quantum
interference by constructing a superfluid quantum interference
device or dc SQUID. Chapter 6 focuses on the experimental efforts
to construct the first superfluid He-3 dc SQUID. Chapter 7 gives a
vision for the future directions of this work.
