5 Nov 2013 - 1:30pm to 6:00pm

The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers using SQUIDs (Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices) for a range of science needs in different fields. SQUID sensors have found applications in geophysics, magnetoencephalography, measuring magnetic properties of materials, quantum information, detector readout and many other areas. This meeting will cover the full range of research using SQUIDs, and identify areas of common interest between researchers from different fields.
