~100 eV of QP barrier possible with thin film Reduced QP poisoning allows 2eperiodicity rf-measurement of 2e supercurrent shown Observe individual QP poisoning events Combination of PAT and CP resonant tunneling observed Future Experimental: investigate charge noise of thin film Experimental: further study individual QP poisoning events Theoretical: look at rf-supercurrent measurement as electrometer (ultimate sensitivity etc)
