At the Texas Center for Superconductivity at the University of Houston (TcSUH), cutting-edge research is fueling innovative technologies with applications ranging from electricity transmission and power generation to biomedicine and biosensors. Currently, a new world-class scanning tunneling microscopy facility for studies of high temperature superconductivity (HTS) and complex materials is being completed.
Obtaining stable superconductivity at new record high temperatures, producing extremely pure oxygen for medical applications, lowering the operating temperature of solid oxide fuel cells for clean energy, and investigating nanomaterials are among important TcSUH programs.
“We have strengthened our primary commitment to fundamental and applied superconductivity research while also taking advantage of the expertise and synergy between our HTS researchers and strong UH research programs in nanomaterials and energy materials,” said TcSUH director and Robert A. Welch Chair of Science in Chemistry Allan J. Jacobson.
