Magnetická interakcia supravodivých a feromagnetických vrstiev: modelovanie, charakterizácia a aplikácie
Magnetic interaction of superconducting and ferromagnetic layers: modelling, characterization and applications
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Seiler Eugen PhD
Annotation: The project aims to investigate the mutual magnetic interaction between superconducting and ferromagneticlayers. Theoretical investigation will rely on numerical models based on the Finite Element Method and theMinimum Electro-Magnetic Entropy Production method. The project will greatly improve the capabilities of thenumerical methods, enabling accurate modelling of real geometries.Experimental investigation is based on characterization of the individual superconducting and ferromagneticlayers and on characterization of simple compound structures, with emphasis on conditions of AC field.Commercially available superconducting tapes will mainly be used as the superconducting elements andcomposites containing ferrite powder will mainly be used as ferromagnetic elements.Using the developed numerical models, the project will analyze and optimize motors with superconductingwindings, as well as design and construct improved magnetic cloaks for shielding AC field.
