Workshop on Superconducting Electronics and Detectors
This workshop will be bringing specialists in superconducting electronics and detectors to meet with the nuclear physics users community.
Superconductors have always held many promises in terms of power savings with the advent of superconducting cavities and superconducting magnets. Since superconductivity is based on loosely bound Cooper pairs, some of the best energy and timing resolutions have been achieved with superconducting detectors such as Transition Edge Sensors and Superconducting Tunnel Junction, Superconducting Nanowires. The main drawback being the low temperature required for operation. This issue can be somewhat alleviated in places where cryogenics is readily available such as Jefferson Laboratory or other major Physics facilities. This can give an opportunity to take advantage of the performances of superconducting devices.
Main topics :
· Superconducting detectors technologies
· Superconducting electronics
· Cryogenics electronics readout
· Properties of superconductors materials and films for detector and electronics productions
· Lithography techniques
· Application of superconducting detectors and electronics for Quantum Computing and AI Machine learning
· Application for physics experiment
· Cryogenics techniques and apparatus
