About the Forum

The AIP Corporate Associates and the APS Forum on Industrial and Applied Physics featured four sessions celebrating the centennial of superconductivity. Speakers from industry, national labs, and universities discussed applications of conventional and high Tc superconductivity ranging from electric power, MRIS, SQUIDs, astronomical detectors, transportation, instrumentation, and magnets.
