Superconductor Filament Fabrication for Advanced Propulsion Research
The purpose of this project is to develop and test methods for fabricating high critical temperature superconductor filaments to be used in advanced space propulsion systems. By collaborating with the Propulsion Research Lab in Huntsville, Alabama, the investigators hope to develop a fabrication process utilizing copper oxide based materials that exhibit high critical temperatures, which is essential for the switching elements in propulsion systems. Through the development of this fabrication process, the investigators` goals are to advance technology associated with the space flight industry, and meet the advanced technology needs of NASA.
