Scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore have invented a device with superconducting nanocrystal structure which is capable of exhibiting superconductivity at high temperature and under ambient pressure conditions.
IISc seeks commercial partners for licensing, collaboration and development of the superconducting technology it has developed.
The invention is a method of preparing superconducting nanocrystals that can be employed to attain superconductivity at higher temperatures which will enable the devices to operate at ambient and elevated temperatures. Since these nanocrystals exhibit superconductivity at higher temperatures, they can be utilized to create magnets, qubits for quantum computation, current carrying interconnects in power grids as well as small scale devices, field generators in maglev trains, as power storage devices, field sensors and as electromagnetic field guides, concentrators and shields.
IISc has filed an application for patent in Indian Patent Office for this invention.
