Applications of Superconductors

KIT Conference Presents Potentials and Applications of Superconductors of the Latest Generation

Efficient electric motors, compact generators, and current limiters for the high-voltage grid. The energy turnaround opens up many applications for high-temperature superconductors. However, high-performance materials must be available and manufacture of superconductors should be inexpensive. At the CCA 2012 International Conference, about 120 experts from industry and science will discuss current developments. Representatives of the media are cordially invited and kindly asked to register using the form enclosed.
