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.
Teresa Puig appears on the 34th volume of Superconductor Week, a monthly newsletter dedicated to bringing news and analysis about superconductivity to all related parties, from scientists to investors in the industry. Their latest issue covers the breakthrough achieved by the Superconducting Materials Research Group (SUMAN) in the field of growth of YBCO epitaxial films, which was already covered in Nature Communications 11, 334 (2020).
Nanotechnology or the circular approach allow advanced compounds to change the economic model, opening a unique opportunity for Spain. INNOVADORES (from La Razon newspaper) has talked to six national research and company experts about this transformation (Xavier Obradors icluded).
A video about the FASTGRID project, where SUMAN group participates, was shot in the premises of our partner the SuperGrid Institute, France.
We share with you the following web link where you can find the videos and slides of the talks presented in the international conference “Materials and Mechanisms of Superconductivity” (M2S-2018).
To celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science SUMAN researchers have partipate in differents actions organized by ICMAB and 11F.
Last week, our researcher Xavier Granados was invited by SAFRAN, French multinational aircraft engine, rocket engine, aerospace-component and defense company , as a world expert and leader of superconducting machines to discuss for the future Aircraft applications.
