EUCAS 2017 will be held in the International Conference Centre of Geneva (CICG). EUCAS is a worldwide forum for scientists and engineers, and provides an ideal platform to share knowledge and the most recent advances in all areas of applied superconductivity: from large-scale applications to miniature electronics devices, with a traditional focus on advanced materials and conductors. The broad scope is at the same time a challenge and an opportunity to foster novel, inter-disciplinary approaches and promote cross-fertilization among the various fields of applied superconductivity.
Results from EMPIR project (15SIB04 QuADC) Waveform metrology based on spectrally pure Josephson voltages will be presented at the conference. This project will develop reliable and easy to use AC voltage measurement systems that can be traced to the standard SI volt. These measurement systems will allow a range of industrial end-users to develop previously unachievable processes and products that rely on fast analogue-to-digital conversion, such as power quality monitors, which provide support to the smart grids of the future.
