MagLab researchers make superconducting breakthrough
March 10, 2014
MagLab researchers in Tallahassee, Fla. have invented a groundbreaking new way to process Bi-2212, a high-temperature superconductor--one that makes it far more useful for building high-powered magnets including very high-field nuclear magnetic resonance magnets, a Muon Accelerator at Fermilab or a new upgrade for the powerful Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
