Multilayered superconductor tapes prepared by means of chemical solution deposition
OXOLUTIA SL is currently developing a new cost-effective process for the obtention of 2G superconductor tapes by chemical solution approaches. This implies the successive deposition and growth of heteroepitaxial thin films on biaxially-textured flexible substrates. Such superconductor tapes find applications in the efficient energy generation, transportation and final use in the form of cables, fault current limiters,home-descsuperconducting magnetic energy storage, transformers, generators, motors, etc. On the other hand, the possibility of generating intense magnetic fields with coils of these tapes makes them interesting for scientific instrumentation and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in medical diagnose. Other uses that can be cited are magnetic separation and levitation
OXOLUTIA SL is a technology-based spin-off company derived from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB).
The ICMAB is a research institute belonging to Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), the largest research organization of Spain, focusing on basic and applied research.
Our mission is to develop the technology based on chemical solution deposition for continuous production of second-generation high temperature superconductor tapes in order to transfer it to the industry.
