S11. Superconducting materials and applications

Recently, significant progress has been made worldwide in the application and fundamental understanding of low- and high-temperature superconductors (HTSs). For example, HTS (such as cuprates) wires and tapes are in commercial production, advances continue to be made in fabrication and application of MgB2, and discovery of iron-based superconductors has sparked an intense search for new superconductors with high transition temperatures. This symposium covers recent developments in the processing of superconducting materials, improvements in flux-pinning via structural and defect optimization, exploration of new superconductors, progress in understanding unconventional superconductivity, and new issues for the field. The development and status of applications and the associated materials science and other issues also will be addressed.
