The group works on: Experiment. Applied Science

Brief description of the research lines of the group and contact details: SUMAN group has a world-leadership position in the area of high temperature superconducting (HTS) films. It is an interdisciplinary group with long tradition in the field of superconducting materials and coated conductors with a diverse expertise in films and nanocomposites films growth by chemical solution deposition, vortex matter, correlation between microstructure vortex physics and electronic properties, and HTS materials integration. In particular, there exists experience in energy applications (fault current limiters, generators, fusion), accelerators, and interest in energy efficient HTS electronic devices.

Singular equipment and techniques available to the group: Inkjet printing apparatus, clean rooms, variable pressure furnace with in-situ resistivity measurement, Transport at high currents, Quench detection, Surface impedance measurements, Traction machine
