June 2012 was the 50th anniversary of the publication of Brian Josephson’s famous paper: “Possible new effects in superconductive tunnelling,” Physics Letters 1, 251 (1962). His prediction of the tunneling of superconducting Cooper pairs, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1973, has led to many important applications in quantum-mechanical circuits, such as SQUID s, superconducting qubits and RSFQ digital electronics. The Cavendish Laboratory marked this anniversary with a one-day meeting held on Saturday 23rd June 2012, with invited speakers covering the past, present and future of Josephson Physics.

Speakers: Philip Anderson (Princeton University), Mark Blamire (Cambridge University), John Clarke (UC Berkeley), Risto Ilmoniemi (Aalto, Finland), Kent Irwin (NIST Boulder), Brian Josephson (Cambridge University), John Martinis (UCSB), Brian Petley (NPL), John Rowell (ASU), Arnold Silver (Rancho Palos Verdes), Dale Van Harlingen (UIUC), John Waldram (Cambridge University).
