The Cryogenic Society of America (CSA) has announced that it is again offering short course in cryogenics, to be held before the Cryogenic Engineering Conference/International Cryogenic Materials Conference (CEC/ICMC) in Anchorage, Alaska.

The courses are to be run as part of the CSA’s goal to provide educational opportunities to professionals in cryogenics and related fields, and will be held on Sunday, June 16, 2013 at the Anchorage Marriott Downtown.

Described by the CSA as ‘ideal for both seasoned professionals and those new to the field’ the courses will be taught by expert instructors with practical knowledge and ‘a passion for the subject’.

Attendees can choose one of two full-day courses or the half-day course, while each student will also receive a copy of the course notes assembled by the instructors.

The course entitled ’Introduction to Cryogenic Engineering’ will be given by Tom Peterson of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and Dr. John G. Weisend II of the European Spallation Source. It will provide a survey of the basics of cryogenic engineering.

Fundamentals of Cryocoolers with Applications to 4K Systems’ will be taught by Dr. Ray Radebaugh (ret. NIST) and Dr. Chao Wang of Cryomech, Inc., while ‘Thermodynamic Fundamentals for Cryogenics’ will be presented by Dr. Friedrich Haug (CERN).
