This innovation is based on the Meissner effect to improve the performance and reduce
the weight, size, and power of spacecraft power and propulsion equipment by greatly
reducing magnetic flux leakage in motors, actuators and other electromagnetic devices.
It will utilize the most advanced form of high-Tc superconductors--thin films. The
objectives are to demonstrate the feasibility of passive flux containment, provide
design data, and to evaluate expected device performance improvements. Cooperative
efforts with NASA engineers are suggested to apply techniques to hardware of current
interest so that immediate results will be available from a Phase II effort.
Potential Commercial Application:
Potential Commercial Applications: Application may occur in cryogenic liquefaction
machinery, in-vacuum process systems, and in high efficiency motors and alternators.
