Abstract:

Recent advances in developing high temperature superconductors have renewed interest in the entire superconductivity field. Modern techniques in materials preparation are making it possible to fabricate a number of new superconducting components which promise significant improvements in the performance of avionics systems. The almost daily revelation of advances in this area attests to its importance as an emerging technology. This Specialists Meeting brought together device scientists and avionics engineers to explore the possibilities for exploiting all aspects of superconductivity in avionics systems. JHD
