Summer school program

The 2018 summer school program is composed of 36 lectures of 45 mn.

Courses include general and specific considerations about superconducting electronics :

  • flux quantization, Meissner effect, proximity effect, etc.
  • properties of low- and high- temperature superconductors
  • physics and properties of Josephson junctions (SIS, SNS, SNIS, SINIS, SFS, SFIS, etc.)
