Superconductors are a fascinating class of materials that can carry electricity without any resistance. The Superconducting Materials research group focusses on understanding relationships between processing, microstructure and properties of a wide variety of superconducting materials. A major part of our current research activity is associated with the Oxford Centre for Applied Superconductivity (CfAS) and involves working closely with local industrial partners to address materials challenges in the superconducting magnet industry, such as superconducting joints and MgB2 bulk materials. We have a growing activity in studying radiation damage in high temperature superconductors, which are a key enabling technology for commercial nuclear fusion reactors. In addition, we specialise in the processing and characterisation of thin films, and have a new research interest in novel superconducting materials for quantum device applications. Susie has recently published a new book - A Materials Science Guide to Superconductors: and how to make them super - which introduces superconductors and materials science to a general audience.
