SUMAN department has been active in the field of superconducting materials since the discovery of High Temperature superconductors, more than 20 years ago, it has widely contributed to the field of vortex pinning analysis and materials development for more than 15 years and more recently, since about ten years, it has shifted its interests towards the chemical solution approaches to superconducting thin films and coated conductors, due to its high potential in terms of cost-effectiveness for practical applications.
This week (13-17 May), our ULTRASUPERTAPE project post-doc, Max Sieger, went to the Ernst-Ruska Centre for Electron Microscopy at the Forschungszentrum Jülich near Aachen in Germany to participate in high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) experiments on superconducting thin films.
Catalyzed by a collaboration between Prof. Teresa Puig and Prof. Enrico Silva within the EUROfusion project, our PhD student, Artur Romanov, was invited for a secondment at the Engineering Department, section of Applied Physics, of Universitá Roma Tre.
