Call for Papers: Instrumentation and Control of Large Helium Cryogenic Systems

Automated control of large Helium Cryogenic Systems is vital to the reliable operation of the large scale scientific devices such as particle accelerators and fusion experiments that require liquid helium temperatures. The proper design and implementation of these control systems is a significant part of the cryogenic system and can represent a major cost, schedule and performance risk. This issue reviews the design and operating experience of the control systems from a number of existing cryogenic systems and also discusses the control approach to a number of cryogenic systems under development. Topics such as hardware and software choices, links to larger control systems, use of community standards and resulting performance are covered.

CERN pays the APC

© CERNCERN is now sponsoring the article-processing charges of manuscripts submitted to EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation that are authored by at least one CERN-affiliated author. Since the launch of SCOAP3 in 2014, all CERN physics results have been required to be published open access. This policy has now been expanded to also include instrumentation articles, and we are pleased that CERN has chosen to support EPJ TI in this initiative. 

If you think you are eligible for this sponsorship, please contact us before submitting your article.

Aims and scope

EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation primarily focuses on the design, implementation, and application of new techniques in all areas of the physical and applied sciences. Of particular interest to the journal are advances produced by:

  • Laboratory-specific custom instrumentation and diagnostics
  • Innovative and clever experimental techniques
  • Refinements to established experimental setups
  • Novel analytical methods

Such articles should summarize a novel, significant result, and provide a detailed description of the equipment, methods, or techniques used to produce the result. They may also include discussions of underlying theory, and/or potential cross-disciplinary applications.  

The journal is also an outlet for the critical assessment, validation and documentation of newly established knowledge and invites article that:

  • comprehensively summarize and review laboratory and instrumentation related procedures and protocols
  • contain best practice and related benchmark studies in advanced experimental data acquisition and processing.
  • contain best practices and related benchmark studies concerning the operation, performance and development of complex scientific instrumentation and equipment.

EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation  publishes regular articles, as well as short commentary articles intended to promote discussion and debate. Reviews of known techniques, or of open questions in emerging fields, are also strongly encouraged. This fully Open Access journal is devoted to the broad, timely, and public dissemination of information.  

About EPJ

EPJ is a rapidly growing series of internationally reputed, peer-reviewed journals that are indexed in all major citation databases. The editorial boards of the EPJ are composed of leading specialists in their respective fields and have made it their mission to uphold the highest standards of scientific quality in the journals. EPJ started in the late 1990s as a merger and co-publication of Zeitschrift für Physik (Springer), Journal de Physique (EDP Sciences) and Il Nuovo Cimento (Società Italiana di Fisica) covering all aspects of the pure and applied physical sciences. Its spectrum has since expanded to encompass many interdisciplinary topics, including complexity and data sciences.
