Experts call on increasing support to superconducting technology studies

Mar 18, 2008     Email"> PrintText Size

    The Chinese government should launch a major research project on superconducting technology, as it is of significant importance for ensuring national energy security and raising energy efficiency and reducing emissions, urged experts at a workshop held at the CAS Institute of Electronic Engineering on 6 and 7 March in Beijing.

    With the support of CAS and the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, the meeting was organized by the International Innovation Partnership Program on Supercomputing Technology, an initiative to back up the teamwork of Chinese scholars in the fiedl at home and abroad. Also present at the meeting were some senior experts in this country, including five CAS members.

    According to the experts, speeding up the materials research and its application demonstration is the key to promoting the practical use of the technology. They also believed that the development of such technology at room-temperature is critical to upgrade the nations' key competitiveness.

    To implement the project, stressed the experts, long-term objectives and development blueprint should be mapped out. It should be conducted step by step and by taking advantages of collective wisdom of Chinese experts at home and abroad.

    The meeting suggested that applied and demonstrative research be conducted hand in hand with various basic research projects in the field. Importance should be placed on such topics as the application of a superconducting magnetic system, superconducting power technology, superconducting communication technology, addressing bottleneck issues and building up complete capacity for simulation, design and manufacturing. At the same time, efforts should be made to deal with relevant technical subjects, such  as cryogenic technology, refrigeration technology, electric power and electronic technology, low-temperature high-voltage and insulation technology and superconducting power systems, so as to promote the its application in energy, transportation and environment industries.
