Introducing the New Editor-in-Chief of “Superconductivity News Forum”

Welcoming a New Editor-in-Chief

Xavier Obradors, EiC of SNFApril 2022

It is with great enthusiasm that I assume the role of the new Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of “Superconductivity News Forum” (SNF), following my two predecessors, Horst Rogalla and Alex Braginski.

I am confident that I echo a worldwide sentiment that SNF is a very useful tool for promoting the international advances in superconductivity R&D and sharing those results to better human life on a global scale. The key role played by the IEEE Council of Superconductivity (IEEE CSC) and the European Society of Applied Superconductivity (ESAS), as well as other scientific societies around the world, in supporting the activities and the initiatives of SNF have been outstanding and have contributed to its success. I am convinced that the synergetic initiatives being generated are very useful, thereby contributing to the expanding impact of the scientific and technological R&D in superconductivity.

New Topical Review: Superconducting Photon Detectors

Photo of the Authors Dmitry, Alessandro, Robert (Glasgow, Scotland, 02 March 2022)March 21, 2022 (HP150). Dmitry Morozov, Alessandro Casaburi and Robert Hadfield at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, have published a major topical review in Contemporary Physics (Taylor & Francis).  This review gives an accessible introduction to the physics of photon detection in superconducting materials.  The leading superconducting device technologies for visible and infrared single-photon detection are surveyed: superconducting tunnel junctions, kinetic inductance detectors, transition edge sensors, superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors and hot electron bolometers.  Current and emerging applications in quantum optics, life sciences, remote sensing and astronomy are signposted.  This review is a valuable resource for new researchers and seasoned experts alike.
