Superconducting Materials: Synthesis and Characterization

Spring / Period 4 & 5 / Monday

Purpose of class:

  • This course introduces a comprehensive state-of-the-art of various aspects of processing methods, properties, and applications of high-Tc superconductors.
  • For high quality materials for industrial applications, the students will have to learn and evaluate phase diagrams.
  • Further, the students will learn to create nano-structures in the production stage and to understand the vortex pinning techniques needed for individual industrial applications.
  • This course is designed to be as broad and rigorous as possible to cover from fundamentals to applications of high-Tc superconductors.
