  • Studies the applications of both low- and high-temperature superconductors for magnetic field and electronic devices.

  • Studies the basic physics and materials science of superconductors.

  • Studies the engineering development of superconducting magnets for fusion, high-energy physics and utility applications.

  • Studies and integrates cryogenic refrigeration methods with high-temperature superconductor applications.

  • Studies the microstructural and electromagnetic properties of grain boundaries and interfaces in high-temperature superconductors.

  • Studies the engineering use of liquid helium.

  • Develops and applies very high-resolution microscopes (high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, parallel electron energy loss spectroscopy, and position-sensitive atom probe microscopy) suitable for nanometer-scale structural and chemical characterization of high-temperature superconductors.
