We constructed a multichannel superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetometer system for magnetoencephalogram measurements. The SQUID is based on the double relaxation oscillation SQUID (DROS), which consists of a hysteretic signal SQUID and a reference junction, and shunted by a relaxation circuit of a resistor and an inductor. With the high flux-to-voltage transfers, usually larger than 1 mV/Φ0, simple flux-locked loop circuits could be used for SQUID operation. The SQUID system consists of 37 integrated magnetometers, distributed on a hemispherical surface, and external feedback scheme was used to eliminate magnetic coupling with the adjacent channels. In addition to the 37 signal channels, 8 reference channels were installed to pickup background noise and to apply software gradiometer. The average noise level of the magnetometers is about 3 fT/√Hz at 100 Hz, operated inside a magnetically shielded room. The magnetometer system was applied to measure auditory-evoked fields.
