Superconductor Technologies Inc. To Present And Exhibit At The Applied Superconductivity Conference October 7th To 12th

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superconductor Technologies Inc. (STI) (Nasdaq:SCON), a world leader in the development and production of high temperature superconducting (HTS) materials and associated technologies, is scheduled to present at the Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland from October 7 th to 12 th. STI will exhibit its Conductus ® superconducting wire in Exhibit Hall B at booth 55. Jeong Huh, Ph.D., will present in the session "Development of 2G HTS Coated Conductors at STI" on Monday, October 8 th at 11:45 a.m. PT.

"STI will report on the advantages of our second generation (2G) superconducting wire," said Adam Shelton, STI's VP of Product Line Management and Marketing. "Our Conductus wire addresses the challenges of volume, cost and performance required to enable the routine use of superconducting wire in applications such as power cables and fault current limiters. We are excited to participate in ASC 2012, an event marking the beginning of the second century of superconductivity."

Dr. Huh will speak on the fabrication of 2G HTS coated conductors using reactive co-evaporation with cyclic deposition and reaction (RCE-CDR) of HTS films onto simplified templates. RCE-CDR is a low-cost, high-yield, scalable process for deposition of HTS films with the advantage that the composition of the films can be precisely varied and reproducibly controlled. At present STI has fabricated samples on simplified IBAD templates that support >500 A/cm-width at 77 K, SF. At all angles of a 3-T applied magnetic field, STI has achieved a minimum Ic value of >250 A/cm-width at 65 K. STI reached this performance without the introduction of artificial pinning centers, simplifying the design and improving yield. STI will also report on the properties of longer lengths of tape.

ASC 2012 brings together leaders in the commercial, military, research, university, and industrial communities from around the world to discuss progress and challenges in the field of applied superconductivity. The event features several plenary sessions focusing on what the industry might expect to see in the next century of superconductivity in science and applications; exhibitors from major superconducting and cryogenic companies; and daily technical discussions from attendees from 70 countries.
