The symposium will broadly cover superconducting materials and applications. An emphasis is placed on facilitating the transition from basic science discoveries to technology deployment of superconducting materials. Contributions to the development of novel and customized superconducting materials are encouraged, which include superconducting electronics for quantum computation and large-scale superconducting devices for high field magnets and power applications.
The superconducting materials of interests include conventional low-temperature superconductors for electronics and sensors, intermetallic superconductors (Nb-Ti and Nb3Sn), medium- and high-temperature superconductors (cuprates, iron-based compounds, and MgB2), superconducting multi-layers and composites, the recently discovered room-temperature hydride superconductors and other emergent materials exhibiting unconventional superconductivity like topological superconductors. Symposium contributors in the area of materials are encouraged to address issues including: 1) response of superconductivity to structural, chemical, and defect tuning; 2) improvement of existing practical materials; 3) synthesis, growth mechanisms, and high throughput fabrication routes; 4) methods to improve application-relevant properties such as flux pinning.
