Research overview

The research of EMS is application oriented and greatly benefits from its internationally recognized expertise and unique infrastructure on applied superconductivity and cryogenics. The focus areas of the group are sustainable energy, healthcare, and advanced instrumentation. In sustainable energy we are investigating application of superconductiviting materials in systems for waste treatment and aviation. We are developing science and technology in the area of sustainable and clean cooling, particularly for the heathcare domain. We are contributing to the big science projects related to low noise cryogenic cooling. The group has an excellent track record in international pioneering projects on sustainable energy (such as ITER on nuclear fusion), but also in non-energy related, but very challenging, projects at CERN and ESA.
