STC wins R&D 100 Award!

The Superconductivity Technology Center has received a 2003 R&D 100 Award for Flexible Superconducting Tape, a technology based on transmitting electricity with no resistive losses. The team, Steve Foltyn, Paul Arendt, Vlad Matias, Brady Gibbons, Ray DePaula, Paul Dowden, Randy Groves, Quanxi Jia, and Sascha Kreiskott (all MST-STC), developed a superconducting tape that carries high currents in high magnetic fields at liquid-nitrogen temperatures. At such temperatures, the tape carries current with no resistance and is flexible enough to be wrapped into a tight coil with no loss of superconductivity. This innovative tape design can carry 200 times the electrical current of copper wire.

Each year, R&D Magazine recognizes the world's top 100 scientific and technological advances with awards for innovations showing the most significant commercial potential. This year the Laboratory won eight awards.
