Cryogenics and Superconductor Technology
KIT is characterized by leading European developments in cryogenics and superconductivity. Examples of this are the development of magnet technology (“Roebel cables”) for LHC upgrades and superconducting insertion devices developed in conjunction with industry.
In cryogenics, KIT is involved in European technology infrastructures such as ARIES (Accelerator Research and Innovation for European Science and Society) and AMICI (Accelerator and Magnetic Infrastructure for Cooperation and Innovation). AMICI at KIT can be reached via amici∂ibpt.kit.edu
