Sep 10 - Morning (10:30-11:15 AM)
Plenary 10 - MgB2 and the Iron-based superconductors

Location: Auditorium Lumière
Chair: Prof. David Cardwell, University of Cambridge

Prof. Marina Putti
University of Genova and CNR-SPIN, Genova, Italy
In the last few years new superconducting materials with intriguing properties suitable for wire developments have come on stage: MgB2 and the Iron-based superconductors. The different nature of their superconductivity, as well as the different chemistry of these materials, has implications for their range of applicability.
The lecture will give an overview of the superconducting properties and of the achievements in wire production and applications.
