Abstract:

Since 2001, when magnesium diboride (MgB2) was first reported to have a transition temperature of 39 K, conductor development has progressed to where MgB2 superconductor wire in kilometer-long piece-lengths has been demonstrated in coil form. Now that the wire is available commercially, work has started on demonstrating a MgB2 wire in superconducting devices. This article discusses the progress on MgB2 conductor and coil development, and the potential for MgB2 superconductors in a variety of commercial applications: magnetic resonance imaging, fault current limiters, transformers, motors, generators, adiabatic demagnetization refrigerators, magnetic separation, magnetic levitation, superconducting magnetic energy storage, and high-energy physics applications.
