Encouraging the next generation of scientists and engineers to become interested in superconductivity is critical. Students and young professionals have the potential to develop new and innovative ideas to help the technology proceed along the pathway to commercialization. To this end, the HTS TCP has been hosting a competition to nurture young researchers in this topic area since 2014.
On 17 November 2015, a Special Session at the International Symposium on Superconductivity held in Tokyo, Japan entitled Superconducting Applications and Future Energy Perspective. Eight candidates presented their research and perspectives for helping to advance the state of the art in superconductivity for energy applications. Three of these presenters were selected for the Young Generation Award.
The three Young Generation Award winners (See photo below) were:
- Dr. Wu of Northwest Institute for Non-ferrous Metal Research who presented the development of MgB2 and Bi2212 wires and lithium-battery materials
- Dr. Kumagai from the University of Tokyo presented on how HTS cables are being utilized for train railways
- Dr. Ainslie from the University of Cambridge presented on how the study of bulk superconductors can be useful for motors and power generators
The HTS TCP is planning to support this effort in future years.
