Application: Yttrium-based 2G Superconductor Leading the Next Generation
Yttrium-based superconducting wire is one of the high-temperature superconductors and is expected to be in practical uses for various applications as the 2nd generation following Bismuth-based superconducting wire.
Fujikura’s yttrium-based superconducting wire has higher performance with longer piece length, higher critical current and its uniformity, which will advance various applications to practical use steadily.
The verifications of superconducting applications are ongoing in electrical power equipment such as power cables and fault current limiters, and industrial motors, medical and analytical equipment using superconducting coils. Yttrium-based superconducting wire has higher critical current in magnetic fields than other superconductors and higher critical temperature above liquid nitrogen temperature, which could achieve high-performance superconducting applications at broader ranges of magnetic field and temperature region.
