SuperPower Inc. is a leading manufacturer and provider of second-generation high-temperature superconducting (2G-HTS) wires. For the past 10 years or more, we have provided, and contributed to, many solutions to various advanced applications and projects for our customers.
2G-HTS wires, unlike the conventional copper conductors, can transport the current with no resistivity, ultimate zero- ohms: This means that the power devices can be shrunk down to very compact sizes with no Joule-heats, when it is operated under cryogenic temperatures (77K, 30K, 4.2K, for instance). Our partners, by using our wire, have demonstrated very-high-current cables capable of more than 10 thousand Amperes, or advanced magnets of ultra-high field more than 40 Tesla.
Such high-power cables and superb coil-magnets will serve for future systems such as next generation NMRs for advanced bio-medical sciences, compact fusion reactors to solve climate changes. Future mobility will come true by HTS- hover transportation, electric-airplanes, or space-aircrafts. Thus, our 2G-HTS wire will contribute to the following sustainable development goals (SDGs).
