Mechanism and enhancement of supercurrent carrying ability in magnesium diboride superconductor

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage International

Abstract


  • The aim of this project is to bring together two world leading teams on the study of the newly developed MgB2 superconductors to tackle some critical issues limiting their application. This project is based on the breakthroughs that both teams have made in recent years and most recently on both bulk and thin film MgB2 samples using nanotechnology and advanced thin film technology. It will build on an already strong collaboration between the two teams with complementary expertise. The outcomes of this project will lead to a comprehensive fundamental understanding of the flux pinning mechanism and will also lead the way to further improving the ability of MgB2 to carry larger supercurrents to the levels required for practical applications.
