Development of superconducting super-magnets
The research activity is focused on nano-structured superconducting super-magnets suitable for industrial applications and capable of making dramatic changes in the daily life. The technology opens up a way for more practical, economical, and reliable production. In this laboratory, students will participate on development of next generation superconducting super-magnets, their production, and characterization. These products have potential to be explored in several industrial applications in medicine, transport, and research. The new superconducting materials have a close relation to magnetic refrigeration, solar energy, high power transport cables, and possess capability to reduce greenhouse gasses and improve our environment.
The high temperature superconducting magnets are useful for several industrial applications including healthcare (MRI, DDS, and others), transport, water cleaning, and research. These products are environmentally friendly and by far more energy efficient than existing magnets.
1. Development of superconducting super-magnets for the day life use.
2. Processing and production of high quality MgB2, FeSe and LRE-123 high-Tc superconducting materials.
3. Development of low cost processes for fabrication of high quality single phase La(Fe,Si) materials for Japan Railway applications.
In our laboratory, students will see how science education is fostered compared to what they have experienced in their countries. They will learn how to employ new technique and use new teaching methodologies useful in developing technologically relevant ideas for future endeavors/ entrepreneurship ventures within the Project Based Learning process.
