New superconducting coil improves MRI performance

A multidisciplinary research team led by University of Houston scientist Jarek Wosik has developed a high-temperature superconducting coil that allows magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners to produce higher resolution ...

Switzerland winds up superconductivity

The unusual electronic properties of some superconducting materials permit lossless and dense electrical currents at very low temperatures, even in high magnetic fields. Conductors made of these materials are thus ideal for ...

AggieSat4 scheduled to deploy from ISS

The AggieSat4 (AGS4) satellite carrying Bevo-2 will be unpacked and assembled aboard the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday (Jan. 27), and released into outer space on Friday (Jan. 29). AggieSat4 launched from ...

Wireless charging and discharging for electric vehicles

In the future, a wireless charging system will allow electric cars not only to charge their batteries, but also to feed energy back into the power grid, helping to stabilize it. The cost-effective charging system achieves ...
