  • China Clay Processed Through the Cryogen-Free Superconducting Powerflux

    Abstract Following the launch of a new generation of industrial cryogen free Superconducting magnets by Eriez Magnetics Europe Ltd, extensive test work has been conducted on a range of kaolin clays at the Eriez laboratory in the UK. After proving the separation capabilities, European kaolin producers, including WBB Minerals, have subsequently purchased and installed Eriez POWERFLUX ...

  • One hundred years of superconductivity: science, technology, products, profits and industry structure

    Superconductivity was empirically discovered 100 years ago. While scientific efforts were rewarded by no fewer than seven Nobel Prizes, there has been only one major application: MRI. The unfulfilled potential of other electrical and electronic applications resulted in the acquisition of the MRI division of Oxford Instruments by Siemens in 2002 and of IGC by Philips in 2006. In this paper, we ...

  • Variable temperature magnetic force microscopy of La2/3Sr1/3MnO3 thin films grown on (LaAlO3)0.3(Sr2AlTaO6)0.7 (LSAT) substrates

    The surface magnetic domain patterns of a La2/3Sr1/3MnO3 film grown on a LSAT (001) substrate, where LSAT stands for (LaAlO3)0.3(Sr2AlTaO6)0.7, were observed by magnetic force microscopy (MFM) as a function of the temperature in the 300?360 K range at its remanent state. Magnetic stripe domains showing an up and down magnetic configuration were observed, thus indicating the existence of a small ...

  • Mesoscopic Kondo effects in nanoscale systems

    A few selected topics on the Kondo effects in mesoscopic systems have been reviewed. Included are the effects of the competition of the spin polarisation and the superconductivity with the Kondo correlation in quantum dots coupled to ferromagnetic and superconducting leads, respectively, and the SU(4) Kondo effects due to the orbital degeneracy in vertical quantum dots, carbon nanotube quantum ...

  • Voltage stabilisation of SMES VSI DC-link and compensation of reactive power by SMES using optimised switching strategies

    This paper presents a novel and optimised switching strategy and control approach for a three-level two-quadrant chopper in a three-level neutral point clamped (NPC) voltage source inverter (VSI) superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES). Using the proposed switching strategy, the voltage of the inverter capacitors in SMES can be independently controlled. Also, the minimum power and ...

  • Comparative performance of BESS and SMES in distribution network to improve power quality

    The FACTS devices, like STATCOM, are becoming a part of the modern power system to improve the power system operation and power quality problems. Integrating the battery energy storage system (BESS)/superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) across the dc bus of the STATCOM can provide effective modulation of the real and reactive power. The dynamics of each of these differ because of their ...

  • 2016 Physics Nobel Prize

    We are thrilled to offer our congratulations to David J. Thouless at the University of Washington (just a few miles up the road from Sterlitech!), F. Duncan M. Haldane at Princeton University, and J. Michael Kosterlitz at Brown University. They collectively revealed the secrets of exotic states of matter! This year’s Laureates opened the door on an unknown world where matter can assume ...

  • UE: risk of shortage for 8 rare earth metals

    In a report published on November 4th, the European Joint Research Centre (JRC) has warned of the "risk of shortage" in 2020-2030 of eight strategic metals used in low carbon energy technologies identified in the European SET Plan adopted in 2008. This report continues the work done in a previous study of the JRC from 2011. It is also based on the scenarios presented in 2011 in the roadmap of ...
