A dc superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) with a resonant microstrip input and a cooled heterostructure field-effect transistor as a postamplifier is used as a radio-frequency amplifier in the frequency range 90–500 MHz. At liquid 3He temperatures, gains of 24 and 20 dB and intrinsic noise temperatures of 0.06±0.02 and 0.12±0.10 K were achieved at 89.6 and 438 MHz, respectively. The system noise temperature at 438 MHz was also estimated from the Nyquist noise produced by a resonant circuit coupled to the input of the microstrip SQUID. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
