Seung Ok Hong

Oxford Superconducting Technology
Award Recipient
For continuing and significant contributions in the field of superconductivity materials research, in particular,
  • for his role in achieving engineering current densities of over 3000 A-mm-2 in commercial NbTi at 5 T and 4.2 K,
  • for his work in commercializing ‘wire in channel’ conductors to provide the low cost, high copper conductor needed for MRI,
  • for his work on RRP internal tin Nb3Sn conductors - the first wire to achieve 3000 A-mm-2  at 12 T and 4.2 K, and
  • for developing Bi-2212 round wire, enabling HTS Rutherford cable to be made for future accelerators.
