Research is performed on various Type 2 superconductors to investigate the basic physical effects limiting critical current density.

The energetics and morphology of fluxoid pinning studied in order to define optimum pinning centers.

High energy, heavy ion damage is utilized as a precise tool to produce varied tailored HTS pinning centers.

Applications of improved HTS materials are developed, e.g. motor/generator; high field magnets for synchrotron radiation studies; red cell separation from blood; levitated trains; HTS coated conductor for high field operation
