Welding Technique Expands Outlook for High-Temperature Superconductors
Published: May 21st, 2014 by Laboratory Network/Edited by Gordon Graff
  Category: Technology
Materials scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne, IL) have developed a way to weld components made of high-temperature superconductors. The welds form strong bonds that preserve uniform electrical flow across the joints. These welded units can be used for current leads, fault current limiters, energy storage devices, high-energy-density motors, and high-current wire or cable. "This innovation is an essential, and long-awaited, key to widespread use of high-temperature superconductors in the electric-power industry," said Boyd Veal, a developer ...
