Viewpoint on high critical current superconducting tapes for generating ultra-high magnetic fields

The journal "Superconductor Science and Technology" published the Viewpoint by Xavier Obradors entitled "High critical current nanocomposite REBa2Cu3O7 (RE = rare earth) tapes: towards a new era of ultra-high field magnetism". The article is about the generation of high magnetic fields with the new superconducting materials that are being studied at the ICMAB, among other places. 

An extract of the text:

There is no doubt that the new era of UHF magnetism opens a very promising prospective for a broad range of new scientific discoveries. For instance, the most challenging accelerator project in HEP (the Future Circular Collider) and the next generation of fusion reactors beyond ITER are planning to use UHF-HTS magnets.

Even more so, it is unpredictable how far the scientific knowledge will advance in condensed matter physics, nanotechnology or chemistry, for instance, but we are deeply convinced that such new powerful magnets will enable far-reaching advances in the comprehension of complex matter at the atomic and molecular scale to be made.
