In 2023 the course returns to Aalto. Cryocourse 2023 takes place on May 18-26, in Nuuksio, Espoo with hands-on exercises at Aalto campus.
Cryocourse is a series of events dating back to 2002. It has been organized in different locations approximately every second year. Events have been hosted in Grenoble (5 times), Helsinki (4), Eindhoven (1), Heidelberg (2), Madrid (1), and Kosice (1). Some of the most recent iterations are presented on the website of the European Microkelvin Platform (EMP).
The Cryocourse concept is valued as an important asset to keep up and disseminate the knowhow of advanced cryogenic techniques on the European scale. In addition to low temperature physics, this is important for many aspects of solid state quantum technology, and for developing new applications of low noise amplification, novel quantum components, and microwave measurements at the single-quantum level.
The event is aimed at young researchers at the graduate and postdoctoral level. We offer training by most knowledgeable and distinguished scientists in the field.
What you will learn
The students are provided with tutorial lectures on cooling and measurement techniques, low-temperature detectors and amplifiers, sample preparation for experiments at extreme conditions, as well as latest developments in the field of low temperature engineering for quantum technology. In addition, the program includes hands-on exercises in thermometry and other low temperature techniques, guided by advanced graduate students and scientists at the Department of Applied Physics of Aalto University.
