MgB2 SUPERCONDUCTIVE
WIRES AND APPLICATIONS

 

Magnesium Diboride (MgB2) becomes superconductive at about 40K implying that MgB2 can be cooled to an operational temperature by either liquid hydrogen or readily available low cost closed-cycle refrigerators. In addition, MgB2  consists of two simple elements Magnesium (Mg) and Boron (B), which are abundant in nature. MgB2 has found itself in a unique position in terms of replacing NbTi at medium magnetic field applications  (i.e MRI machines) and displacing high temperature materials at low field applications (i.e. power generation and transmission).
