Superconductivity and particle accelerators 2018: SPAS'2018 conference overview
Dariusz Bocian , Ryszard Romaniuk
AbstractSuperconductivity and Particle Accelerator (SPAS) conference is devoted to research in the domain of superconductivity and its applications in science, as well as on research in the field of particle accelerators, conducted in Polish research institutions as well as by Polish scientists working in the international laboratories. The objective of SPAS conference is to identify current and potential areas of research in superconductivity and particle accelerators, developed and possible to develop in Poland and to determine the needs in the infrastructure to support this research. The SPAS’2018 program included all main areas related to the superconductivity and accelerators, and also included a task of challenges in thermonuclear projects, which are non-accelerator project but related to the superconductivity and superconducting technology developed for accelerators. Another interesting subjects presented during conference were the Rapid Single Quantum Flux electronics which uses Josephson junctions and could be possible used in superconducting quantum computer, and lead-free materials that could substitute materials containing lead in its composition.
