July-August 2017: Julia’s stay in Japan

Our PhD Student Júlia Jareño is visiting Prof. Shimoyama Laboratory in Aoyama Gakuin University, in Japan. Through their expertise in thin film growth, the project is focused on studying the growth mechanism of Ba2342 as a buffer layer for YBCO films. Our student has also had the oportunity to visit the Asahi substation from Tokyo power where a BSSCO cable is on operation.
