Superconducting wires are electrical wires made of highly specialized materials which have zero electrical resistance when cooled below a critical temperature. Because the wires transport electric current at low temperatures with no loss, they are ideally suited to a number of energy-efficient technologies.
The Bruker EST portfolio includes high performance superconducting wires that can carry up to 100 times the current of conventional copper wires. These enable the advancement of technologies such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) whose performance depends on high field magnets and requires exceptionally high stability and low energy consumption.
NMR technology plays a key role in research into cancer therapies and drug development. Other areas of application include advanced physics research at CERN, the European Council for Nuclear Research, to help probe the fundamental structure of particles that make up everything around us. We are working on delivering sustainable energy by participating in fusion energy research, including the ITER project, one of the most ambitious energy projects in the world that sets out to advance fusion as a large-scale source of energy. We also conduct research into the commercial potential of new superconductors, based on our extensive knowledge and experience in the highly complex and specialist field of superconducting technology.
Our technology is tailored to our customers’ specific needs to support the pioneering work of scientists and academic institutions across the globe.
