Superconducting wire that will enable superconducting magnets with 20-50 tesla.
China, Japan, United States and several European countries all should have 45 tesla hybrid superconducting magnets soon.
An 88 page report from Europe explains the material challenges (physical stresses) that put an upper limit around 100-120 tesla for a superconducting magnet.
The economics and production volume of superconducting should begin the superconductor economic revolution from 2017 onwards.
The energy in a 100 Tesla magnet is about the same as TNT by weight.
We will have the wires and magnets for the applications
Superconducting engines will be several towers smaller and lighter with more energy density.
This enables better electric planes, electric helicopters, electric ships, electric cars and trucks.
There are many superconducting applications.
There is also the potential for ground breaking capabilities with nuclear fusion and space propulsion. Not just revolutionizing existing products but enabling new capabilities.
