Abstract : The objectives of this delivery order were to 1) Develop new superconductors and improve state-of-the-art yttrium barium copper oxide (YBCO)-coated conductors for optimal performance as a coated conductor in high-temperature superconductor (HTS) generators and magnets by flux pinning mechanisms but also thicker films 2) Conduct research to advance thermoelectric materials by exploring novel chemistries and processes, including combinatorial methodologies, for tailoring thermoelectric responses 3) Investigate carbon nanotube growth on various materials, especially metals and diamonds, with emphasis on thermal and electrical properties for power generation and cooling applications 4) Conduct magnetic material research by investigating high energy product permanent magnets, improvements in soft magnet mechanical strength, and modeling magnetic structures such as rotors and stators, and also provide additional support for thermal physics issues on an as-needed basis 5) Develop improved measurement techniques and standards of measurement as needed for properties of HTSs, thermoelectrics, carbon nanotubes, and thermal and magnetic materials.
