ESAS Winter School in Electronics 2016 - Application Deadline Extended

May 27, 2016 (A348U).  The ESAS Winter School on Novel Frontiers in Superconducting Electronics: from Fundamental Concepts and Advanced Materials towards Future Applications will be held from December 12th to17th, 2016, in Pozzuoli (Napoli), Italy. The school is a satellite event of the International Superconductive Electronics Conference (ISEC 2017), which will take place in Sorrento (Italy) the following year and is co-sponsored by IEEE CSC.  This School is complementary to and coordinated with the ESAS Summer School on Superconducting Electronics 2016 (see A345).

The School offers a unique possibility to learn, in a relatively short time and by direct interaction with highly qualified experts, the novel trends and the latest developments at the frontier of science, where fundamental physical effects, advanced materials, novel device concepts and methodologies in nanotechnology can lead to innovative solutions to novel electronics employing superconducting phenomena and technologies. The aim of the school is to bridge the world of fundamental phenomena and advanced materials with technological applications and to provide a background and a vision on futuristic device concepts and their applications.

Superconducting electronics: basic aspects

  • Digital SC electronics
  • Analog SC electronics
  • Superconducting memories

Interfacing superconductivity with other functional degrees of freedom

  • Superconducting spintronics
  • Spin control through light: towards the integration with
  • Semiconductor-superconductor hybrids: unconventional
    superconductivity and quantum topological order
  • Ferroelectricity and superconductivity: hybrid solutions
  • Coherent superconducting caloritronics

Superconducting fast interconnections

  • Low dimensional nanostructures, nanowires,
    2D one-layer materials ([e.g. graphene, silicene, etc.]).
  • Low dimensional superconducting electronics for fast interconnections.

The maximum number of students has been set to be 30.  Pre-registration applications must be sent to Adriana Santroni ( by October 15, 2016, together with a short CV, and a presentation letter by your supervisor, or a representative of your home institution. Non-local applicants may obtain limited financial aid to help cover the participation expenses.
