Scientific Program

The International Workshop on Low Temperature Detectors (LTD) is held every two years and represents the preferred meeting to present the latest developments, the applications and the status and results of the main scientific experiences using low temperature detectors. The rapid technical developments of the last years and their outstanding features make these detectors very attractive in a variety of fields ranging from fundamental research to applied sciences.
