The 2018 Summer school about Superconducting Electronics is intended for students, engineers and researchers who want to get familiar with Superconducting Electronics and its applications.
It took place on September 23-28, 2018 at Hotel Sol Falco, Pula, in the beautiful balearic island of Minorca, in Spain. It focused on delivering lectures starting from the basics to several specific topics.
Four main topics were considered :
- detectors (THz detectors, SIS mixers, Hot Electron Bolometers (HEB), Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors (MKIDs), SNSPDs, …)
- SQUIDs (physics, fabrication, applications,…)
- superconducting electronics including digital electronics principles, design and layout tools, practicals
- cryogeny and cryogenic systems (main properties, available systems, handling)
Each attending student was required to make a poster presentation showing his current work or interest. An evening was reserved for the poster session to create interactions and mutual interests.
