Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • The applicants are world leaders in magnesium diboride (MgB2) superconductor research and technology. In maintaining this leadership position this proposal is aimed at achieving major advances in the performance levels of MgB2 superconductors. This will be accomplished by harnessing the combined experience of a strong international collaborative team consisting of eminent researchers from five leading groups. This proposal is built on major breakthroughs in MgB2 made by the applicants. The outcome of the research will be MgB2 wires which are light, robust, thermally stable and cheap with high electromagnetic performance.
