A new method of preparation of radio-frequency superconducting quantum interference devices on MgB2 thin films is presented. The variable-thickness bridge was prepared by a combination of optical lithography and of the scratching by an atomic force microscope. The critical current of the nanobridge was 0.35 μA at 4.2 K. Noncontact measurements of the current-phase characteristics and of the critical current versus temperature have been investigated on the authors’ structures.
