In order to study the effect of a multiturn input coil on superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) characteristics, the radio frequency (rf) properties of the coupling circuit between the SQUID coil and the input coil are studied. For the measurement of rf properties of the coupling circuit, the so-called expanded model of the coupling circuit using normal metals was adopted, which is shown to be very useful for this purpose. It is shown that the SQUID coil cannot be expressed by a simple inductance when the SQUID coil is coupled to the input coil, i.e., many resonant structures are observed in rf properties of the coupling circuit. It is also shown that the damping resistance is useful in suppressing the resonant structures. Using the experimental results, a circuit model of the SQUID coupled to the multiturn input coil is proposed.
