American Superconductor has been awarded a two-year, $750,000 grant by the National Institutes of Health for the development of second-generation high-temperature superconductor wire. HTS wire is used in MR scanners, as well as laboratory NMR spectroscopy devices. The immediate goal of the project is to create HTS wire that will boost electromagnets in NMR devices to 25T or higher. (The highest magnetic field available in leading-edge commercial NMR machines is 21.1T.) Such wire would also have advantages in MR scanners.
