2024 summer school program

The 2024 summer school program will be composed of a set of 45 mn-lectures, of a poster session provided by participants, and of a pitch session where each participant can briefly introduce her/his work in about 3mn. The pitch session will take place just before the poster session.

Each participant 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.

The detailed summer school program for the 2024 summer school is upon preparation. For information only you can find below the programme of the last school held in 2022 which gives the general template.

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)
