2022 summer school program

The 2022 summer school programs will be finalised soon. It will be composed of a set of lectures of 45 mn, of poster sessions provided by attendees, and a 60-mn pitch session where each attendee can briefly introduce her/his work in about 3mn. The pitch session will take place before the poster sessions.

Each attendee is asked to make a poster presentation showing her/his current work or interest to create interactions and mutual interests. Special sessions are reserved for a 60-mn oral pitch session where each attendee can shortly present his work to be displayed during the poster sessions.

You can pre-register to the school by following this link.

Courses include general and specific considerations about superconducting electronics:

  • Quantum physics, basics of superconductivity and Josephson effect
  • Thin-film fabrication techniques for both low-Tc and high-Tc superconductors
  • Superconducting digital electronics:  basics, circuit design, layout, verification
  • Superconducting qubits and quantum-limited measurements
  • Superconducting neuromorphics
  • SQUIDs: working principles, noise performances, main configurations, micro and nano-SQUIDs and their nanoscale applications, scanning SQUID microscopy
  • Superconductor-based metrology
  • Superconducting detectors : HTc SNSPDs, THz detectors, SIS mixers, Hot Electron Bolometers (HEB), Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors (MKIDs),…
  • Cryogeny and cryogenic systems (main properties, available systems, handling)

To have a better idea about the typical organisation of the summer school you can have a look on the scientific programs of the 2016 and 2018 schools.
