Oxford has a long tradition of pursuing the exciting world of superconductivity and our Centre reflects the direct engagement between research and industry to prepare the technological and fundamental advances of the future. Our Superconductivity Hub is a joint project between the Materials Department and the Physics Department of the University of Oxford and the local industrial partners and research centres with interests in future applications of superconducting materials.
To pursue projects that can lead to future technologies and lead to the discovery of novel superconducting materials.
To train people with theoretical and practical skills in superconductivity transferable to careers in relevant industries and research institutes.
The Centre hosts a suite of experimental and testing facilities to encourage interaction between academia and industry to solve problems experienced in current applications and to explore future application areas.
