Welcome to the

14th Workshop on Low Temperature Electronics, 

to be held April 12 – 15, 2021 in Matera, Italy

The 14th edition of the Workshop on Low Temperature Electronics (WOLTE-14) will be held in Matera, a unique historical town on the patronage of UNESCO world heritage and a very attractive European capital of culture, situated in southern Italy.

Beyond the traditional fields of WOLTE-14, this edition opens to emerging topics including low temperature devices for quantum communication, computation, and spintronics, space electronics, and sensing, communication cubesat, optoelectronics, hybridization and integration of semiconductor, superconductor, magnetic and photonic devices (both detectors and sources) working at low temperatures.

Industrial and technological applications will receive particular attention in a dedicated and attractive exhibition area.

The social program will entail a welcome cocktail reception and a conference dinner. A rich excursion program will be offered to accompanying guests.

The WOLTE-14 will be organized by the University of Napoli Federico II, CNR SPIN, and ASI.

Save the date! We look forward to seeing you in Matera!
