Study on High Precision Maglev Technology for Yttrium-Based High-Temperature Superconductor Coil
Contents In the laboratory, they have been developing techniques, as part of fusion energy application research, to control the maglev state of a magnetic field generating coil for confining ultrahigh-temperature plasma. These techniques allow a high-temperature superconductor coil capable of generating a strong magnetic field and having a weight of several tens of kilograms to be floated freely in a vacuum vessel or in the air, and further its position to be controlled at an accuracy of several tens of micrometers.
It is thought that in the future, the maglev technology for high-temperature superconductor coils can be deployed into key components not only in power devices but also in various precision devices such as medical and analyzing devices. However, bismuth-based high-temperature superconductor coils, the current mainstream, are not sufficient for such deployment, and so they study on the application of yttrium-based high-temperature superconductor coils, which show excellent properties of, for example, stronger magnetic field, higher stability, and smaller current attenuation. We hope to promote their practical application and development with your company if you are interested in deploying this technology.
