Superconducting Devices and Applications

This workshop is sponsored by the IOP Superconductivity Group. The organiser also acknowledges the support of the EMRP. The EMRP is jointly funded by the EMRP participating countries within EURAMET and the European Union.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers on a wide range of superconducting devices, Quantum Information Processing, detectors and other applications to discuss and update new developments in those areas.

The scientific themes of workshop will be addressed through invited and contributed presentations. There will be three talk sessions:

Recent SQUID developments
Quantum Information Processing
Superconducting Electronics Applications and Cryogenic Developments
In addition, there will be a poster session.

One of the principal features of the meeting is that it will give young researchers the opportunity to present their work. Two prizes will be awarded by the workshop sponsors for the best poster presentations.
