Abstract : For a long time it has been recognized that superconductivity offers a whole new realm of device performance in such applications as microwave components, radiating elements, detectors, and high speed electronics. However, the cost and complexity of liquid helium cooling systems represented an unyielding impediment to the development of practical systems. High temperature superconductivity, having less stringent cryogenic requirements, provides the impetus to the development of truly practical systems. The topics to be covered during the workshop include basic high temperature superconductivity research, theory, and experimentation; the electrical, optical, thermal, magnetic, and mechanical properties of materials; the fabrication and characterization of thin films; small scale applications such as computer electronics, SQUIDS, and IR detectors; large scale applications such as energy storage, magnets, magnetic shields and switches; and superconducting/semiconducting hybrid devices. Optical/electrical properties; Thermal/mechanical properties; Magnetic fields; Thin films; Infrared detectors.
