Deutsche Nanoschicht launches new HT superconductors  

By Gerald Ondrey |

High-temperature (HT) superconductors can be manufactured much more efficiently and with less environmental impact by means of the innovative production process developed by technology company Deutsche Nanoschicht GmbH (Rheinbach, Germany; www.d-nano.com). Superconductors carry current virtually without loss, so they allow potentially huge savings in generating and transporting electricity. BASF Future Business GmbH (Ludwigshafen, Germany; www.basf-fb.de) supports Deutsche Nanoschicht as a cooperation partner. The wires for high-temperature superconductors are manufactured by a coating process developed by Deutsche Nanoschicht that uses chemical solution deposition. The ceramic layers produced in this way have superconducting properties because they feature flawless crystal orientation. “Chemical deposition processes are technically challenging but hold enormous economic potential,” explaines Michael Bäcker, managing director of Deutsche Nanoschicht. Industrial and energy sector customers, in particular, can benefit from the company’s patented solutions. “Wherever large volumes of electricity are generated, transported or used, the technologies we have developed facilitate innovative power engineering systems…
