November  2017

Dear CSE followers,

A lot has happened recently !
The CSE has grown in the last year and can presently count on the support of 30 Corporate Members from 7 different countries (7 Germany, 4 each from Switzerland and the Netherlands, 3 each from Italy and France, 2 each UK and Spain, and 1 each from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Poland, and Latvia). There are 55 Individual Members from 14 countries (16 Germany, 9 each from France and UK, 4 each from Switzerland, Netherlands and Sweden, 2 each from Poland, 1 each from Italy, Latvia, Spain, Slovenia, Portugal, Romania, and USA).


3rd General Meeting


The yearly General Meeting took place on September the 13th in Karlsruhe, Germany, within the European Cryogenics Day, organized in conjunction with the 2nd International Workshop on Cooling of High-Temperature Superconductor Applications (ECD-IWCHTS 2017). At the GM the Board reported on the activities and on the finances of 2017.

You can find pictures of the event here and a copy of the presentations of both the ECD and the workshop here.


New Logo!

The most exciting news is that CSE now has a logo! It was an iterative process carried out by professional designers ( with constant input from the Board members to elaborate a symbol that can represent the European cryogenics community, and we are happy and proud to present the logo that you see on top of this newsletter. Corporate members will soon receive a dedicated version of the logo to be used on their website.

CSE website

Highlight for 2017 is certainly the new CSE website.

Apart from News and a Calendar of upcoming Events, you will find under "Resources" a literature list, a cryogenics map and an archive of conferences and proceedings. Part of the content belongs to the restricted area of the website, which is reserved to CSE members.


It is also possible to 'Ask the experts' of the CSE questions concerning cryogenics. Anyone can pose a question and access the answers to that question, but only CSE members will have unlimited access to the archive of questions and answers.

Under “Careers” you may find the current vacancies in cryogenics and related fields. You are welcome to notify us job openings by writing to

The Corporate Members have of course dedicated pages, with all relevant information about their activities and products.

Honorary Member

Prof. Fons de Waele has been awarded CSE honorary membership for both his important contributions to the field of cryogenic engineering and his support of the CSE.

New CSE Member

We would like to welcome the Technical University of Dresden among our members. The Bitzer Chair of Refrigeration, Cryogenics and Compressor Technology, presently headed by Prof. Ullrich Hesse, is specialized in liquid helium and liquid hydrogen technologies. The activities on cryogenics are led by Prof. Christroph Haberstroh, who is also a CSE Board member.

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.
