MTT-18 Microwave Superconductivity Committee

Our Mission

The goal of MTT-18 Microwave Superconductivity and Cryogenics (MWSC) Committee of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques is to promote widespread interest in technologies and applications based on superconductivity and new materials in cryogenic operation.

The committee consists of MTT-S and related society members from academia, government, and industry with significant expertise in this technology.

MTT-18 cooperates with other Technical Committees to educate IEEE members about this technology and to expand this technology to the production phase.
