Development of superconducting leads with ultra-low thermal conductivity for cryoelectronic applications

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Projects

Abstract


  • The project aim is to develop novel technologies for new superconducting current leads, carrying large channels of digital information with minor attenuation and ultra-low thermal conductivity for high-sensitivity, low-noise superconductive cryogenic electronics. The successful outcome will be the realisation of multi-line heat-switches based on multilayer thin/thick-film techniques, which would minimise heat generation and its transfer to cryoelectronic components. The significance is that it will open the door for employment of existing high performance cryoelectronics by using superconducting heat-switch leads, which may have a breakthrough effect by easing the pressure of high cooling costs and enabling compact packaging.
