The 2016 Summer school about Superconducting Electronics is intended for students, engineers and researchers who want to get familiar with Superconducting Electronics and its applications.

It will take place on September 25-30, 2016 at Hotel Flamingo, Pula, in the south of Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea.
It will focus on delivering lectures starting from the basics to several specific topics. Some practicals are also planned to learn to handle tools to design circuits or/and systems.

Four main topics are 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 will be required to make a poster presentation showing his current work or interest. An evening will be reserved for the poster session to create interactions and mutual interests.

Pre-registration is necessary to be considered for acceptance by the scientific committee. From June 8, pre-registrations are still possible but the availability of hotel rooms is not guaranteed. Pre-registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis, depending on hotel rooms availability and suitability of applicants.
