LEXINGTON, Kentucky, June 3, 2021 – For several years, Engi-Mat has been the world’s leading developer and producer of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x nanoparticles, or Bi2212. These materials are a critical component in the ongoing effort to develop cost-effective materials for large scale accelerator magnets and related applications. Research in this area was recently completed by SPIN Institute, part of the National Research Council (CNR) – the largest public organization pursuing research and innovation in Italy. The research conducted by scientists at CNR-SPIN and their colleagues is summarized in the article on Nature.com, “Transport current and magnetization of Bi-2212 wires above liquid Helium temperature for cryogen-free applications”, which published today in Scientific Reports, the sixth-most cited journal in the world. See Bi2212 Nature Article. Engi-Mat remains dedicated to supporting the ongoing development efforts in this field.
