July  2019

Dear CSE followers,

the Summer awaits with a number of appointments for the Cryogenics Community starting with the Space Cryogenics Workshop and the CEC-ICMC2019 in USA, followed by the ICR2019 in Canada and concluding in Glasgow with EUCAS2019. For the selected students the Summer will culminate in the three weeks long European Course of Cryogenics in Dresden, Wroclaw and Trondheim.  

Check regularly our website to keep informed on upcoming events and deadlines.
And if you are not a member yet, consider joining the CSE community!



The CEC-ICEC2019 is coming up! It will be held at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford (see picture below) and as always, it will present the latest research and state-of-the-art developments in all cryogenics areas, including superconductivity, cryocoolers, cryogenic materials, and application.


Following a long tradition the Cryogenics Society of America (CSA) will offer three short courses on Sunday, July 21.
Full-Day Sessions:
1) Property and Cooler Considerations for Cryogenic Systems- J.M. Pfotenhauer, F.K. Miller, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and R.C. Dhuley, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
2) Cryocooler Fundamentals - R. Radebaugh, NIST Fellow Emeritus, and M. Zagarola, Principal Engineer, Creare LLC
Half-Day Session:
3) Getting Started with Cryogenic Fuels—Liquefied Hydrogen and Natural Gas - J. Leachman, Associate Professor, Washington State University
Here you may find information concerning the content and the cost of the courses. Registration may be done online or directly on site with an extra-cost.

EASI-Train School



The Horizon 2020 EASITrain Project, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie (MSCA) training network, organizes its autumn school (EASISchool 2) from the 30th of September to the 4th of October 2019 at CEA in Paris-Saclay and Grenoble, France. The school will offer lectures on both advanced cryogenics and cryogenics applications. Namely, there will be specialized training sessions on medical and accelerator applications, and superconducting magnets at Paris-Saclay and  on space applications, instrumentation, large-scale refrigeration at Grenoble. Here you may find the scientific program. 
Participants will get a unique opportunity for making contacts to the industry and will get a chance to visit laboratories  such as Neurospin, CEA,  ESRF/EMFL-LNCMI and Air Liquide. Specifically: 
  • 30 Sep. - 1 Oct. - Neurospin laboratory, Paris-Saclay
  • 2 Oct. - ESRF/EMFL-LNCMI labs in Grenoble
  • 3 and 4 Oct. - MINATEC center, Grenoble
The school is open to 30 external attendee for the whole week training and to 50 local participants for one-day training eithe at Paris-Saclay or at Grenoble. Registration is now open !!!

New Careers Section  

The CSE website has a new Careers section, which serves two purposes. On the one hand it allows enterprises and reasearch institutions to reach out to a wide audience within the Cryogenics Community for advertising job openings. Clearly this service is for free for corporate members. On the other hand it provides information to individuals who are seeking new opportunities for their career in Cryogenics and related fields. Positions at companies or research institutions that are not yet CSE members will appear only in the restricted area of our website.

Contact us via if you wish to advertise a job!

Position at the
University of Twente


The research group Energy, Materials and Systems (EMS) of the University of Twente offers a position for Associate Professor (f/m) in Superconducting Materials and Applications. Deadline for applications is August 30th 2019.

Member Spotlight



We thank CAN Superconductors for its support as sustaining member of the CSE. CAN Superconductors is a leading European manufacturer of HTC superconducting bulk materials and components with more than 20 years market presence. They specialize in R&D and production of YBCO and Bi-2223 superconductors and REBCO powders. All their products are based on long-term research and experience in superconductivity and related fields. They supply superconductors not only for research and development but primarily for real commercial applications. Give a look at the profile of the company on our website. 

New CSE Member

We would like to welcome the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), a world's leading facility in neutron science and technology. The ILL has been performing experiments at the cutting edge of research for more than 40 years now, in fields as varied as molecular biology, chemistry, fundamental physics, materials science and the environment. When beams of neutrons are used to probe small samples of materials they have the power to reveal what cannot be seen using other types of radiation. Neutrons appear to behave either as particles or as waves or as microscopic magnetic dipoles. It is these specific properties which enable them to yield information which is often impossible to obtain using other techniques.

The membership fee for universities and research institutions, as non-profit entities, is a bargain! Consider joining us and allowing students and personnel full access to the restricted area of the CSE website.
