ESAS Summer School on New Trends with Superconducting Quantum Detectors

News del 01/07/2013

The European Society for Applied Superconductivity (ESAS) Summer School on “New Trends with Superconducting Detectors” will be held in Genoa from 9th to 13th September 2013. The school has been organized in co-operation with the Institute SPIN of National Council of Research (CNR, Dept. of Physical Sciences and Matter Technologies DSFTM), the University of Genoa, the University of Naples Federico II and the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (Genoa Section). The School is also sponsored by the Società di Ottica e Fotonica (SIOF) and the European Physical Society.

The school aims to provide an up to date scientific and technological review of the superconductivity applied to the wide fields of the electronics, devices and detectors. The basic knowledge of the superconducting phenomenology that is functional to both the present technical and scientific developments are given in large extent in highly didactic lectures. These basics arguments are enriched with topical seminars on specialized aspects that are of great interest for the fundamental and applied science: computing, quantum optics and communication, energy dispersive spectroscopy, particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology, biology and metrology.

The school is proposed to the European students and young scientists interested in exploiting the “low power” superconductivity field for application to high precision measurements and high performance devices. One of the purposes of this school is to bring together the participants with authoritative scientists that are active in the field in short but intense week. Participants are invited to present their projects, findings and results in short posters.

The School is mainly targeted at postgraduate students as well as young industry professionals that aims to broaden their skill or insight into the potentialities of this emerging technology.

The ESAS Summer School is a satellite event of the EUCAS biennial European Conference on Applied Superconductivity. The school will be held at the headquarter of the CNR SPIN Institute, Corso Perrone 24 (Genova). More information can be found on the school website http://esasschool.spin.cnr.it/.
