Dear Colleagues,

We are glad to inform you about the ESAS Winter school on Novel Frontiers in Superconducting Electronics: from Fundamental Concepts and Advanced Materials towards Future Applications.

The ESAS Winter school will take place on December 12-17, 2016, in Pozzuoli (Napoli), Italy.
We are also very glad to communicate that the following lecturers have confirmed their participation in the school:

  • O. Mukhanov (Hypres Inc, USA)
  • I. Vernik (Hypres Inc, USA)
  • T. Ortlepp (CiS Forschungsinstitut für MikrosensorikGmbH - Erfurt, Germany)
  • F. Giazotto (CNR NANO - Pisa, Italy)
  • J. Aarts (University of Leiden, The Netherlands)
  • Y. Tanaka (Nagoya University, Japan)
  • J. Robinson (University of Cambridge, UK)
  • F. Lombardi (Chalmers University, Sweden)
  • A. Kimel (Radboud University, The Netherlands)
  • R. Sobolewski (University of Rochester, USA)
  • H. Boschker (Max Planck Institute Stuttgart, Germany)

Their lectures will cover the following topics: 1) Toward energy-efficiency electronics; 2) Interfacing superconductivity with other functional degrees of freedom (spin, light, quantum topology, ferroelectricity, caloritronics); 3) Superconducting fast interconnections down to low dimensional nanostructures, nanowires, 2D single-layer materials; Methodologies for the design of nanostructures based on advanced materials

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 for facing the needs and the challenges of a futuristic electronics employing superconducting phenomena and technologies. The scope of the school is to bridge the world of fundamental phenomena and advanced materials to technological applications with the aim to provide a background and a vision on futuristic concept devices and related applications.

For further information on application fee, please refer to

The maximum number of students has been set to about 30. 

Please send applications to Adriana Santroni (adriana [dot] santroni [at] spin [dot] cnr [dot] it) up to October 15, 2016, together with a short CV and a presentation letter by a supervisor or an exponent of the home institution.

For non-local participants a contribution to support covering the participation expenses is available.

Please encourage the students and younger members of your laboratories to participate and register.

Sincerely Yours,

The Organizing Committee
