SAINT JEAN CARBON SUPERCONDUCTOR PAPER TO BE PRESENTED AND PUBLISHED AT ICNFA17
Saint Jean Carbon Inc. and the University of Western Ontario's latest paper, titled "Deposition of YBCO Nanoparticles on Graphene Using Matrix-assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation," which is related to the development of thin superconductor by using graphene-based products, has been accepted for presentation and publication in the proceedings of International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications (ICNFA17).
Dr. Jin Zhang, PhD, associate professor, department of chemical and biochemical engineering, University of Western Ontario, commented: "High-temperature superconductivity (HTS) brought significant breakthroughs in electric power technology, medicine, information technology. For decades, scientist and engineers have been taking great efforts to develop thin/ultrathin superconductors at high temperature which can achieve the high-energy-saving and ultrahigh-speed processing. The most challenges to develop thin/ultrathin HTS materials are related to identify the source of charge carrier, tailor the interface between different composites to enhance the current density, and, of course, an easy way to produce thin HTS materials. In this paper, we demonstrate a simple process to incorporate superconductive nanoparticles onto graphene sheets, the two-dimensional structures at nanoscale. This work could offer an alternative method to produce ultrathin HTS materials in an easy and controllable fashion."
Paul Ogilvie, chief executive officer of Saint Jean Carbon, commented: "We are really pleased when our work can stand out when there is so much other quality research going on around the world. Once the publication is issued, we will post the paper to our website. We continue to push the limits to what graphene can do, with the hope that the technology will find its way into all sorts of different applications."
