In this work, we investigate two-dimensional arrays of High-T C superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) for optimization of their electrical transport characteristics. Specifically, we look at devices with different electrode configurations in between the series segments to gain insight into how the array spacing, in the direction of the bias current, affects the voltage magnetic field characteristics. Our results suggest that for spacing dimensions greater than the penetration depth interactions are minimal. Furthermore, comparisons of voltage field characteristics reveal higher modulation voltages and narrower peaks with as the numbers of SQUIDs in the parallel direction increases from 1 to 6. For larger numbers of SQUIDs in parallel greater than 6 little change is observed. These results suggest a pathway to SQUID array scaling for very large numbers of SQUIDs within in a small area.
