SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS AND LARGE SCALE NANOSTRUCTURES
PhD call offer in the framework of H2020-NMBP-2016-2017-721019 FASTGRID project “Cost effective FCL using advanced superconducting tapes for future HVDC grids”
The project aims to engage talent young students for a Physics doctorate to improve significantly existing High Temperature Superconducting conductor architectures to make Superconducting Fault Current Limiters economically attractive for HVDC Supergrids. In particular, working on the development, characterization and physical properties measurements of novel concepts based on interfacial layers for current directing and superconducting layers on high thermal conductivity substrates, all grown by chemical solution inkjet printing.
