School on

Superconductivity and Cryogenics

in Accelerators and Tokamaks


Centre for Advanced Technology, Indore - 452013 (India)

27 January - 7 February, 1998

Detailed Program


The Indian Accelerator and Tokamak programmes are now entering a new phase with the initiation of superconductivity based projects namely, Superconducting (SC) Cyclotron at VECC, Calcutta, SC LINAC at TIFR & NSC, SC Tokamak (SST-1) at IPR, Gandhinagar, SC Wiggler and SC multipole magnets at CAT, Indore. It is important for the success of these programmes that the young Indian scientists and engineers who will work in these projects be exposed to the current advances in these fields. The school is aimed at providing an opportunity to discuss basic as well as technological aspects of superconductivity and cryogenics in such devices. Basic and advanced lectures by experts from abroad and India who have a wide experience in their respective fields of specialization are planned. Special seminars on topics related to Indian programmes on Superconducting Accelerators and Tokamaks will also be held during the school. The participants should preferably be working in this field.


Core topics to be covered in the school are :
