Industry need drives our research. We provide science and engineering expertise to commercial partners to solve problems and develop new high-value products.
We develop and manufacture high temperature superconductor Roebel cable for use in high field and accelerator magnets, transformers, generators and motors.
The magnet group develops cryogen-free superconducting magnet systems for magnetic resonance applications.
We create advanced technologies in partnership with New Zealand and international device and system manufacturers, to supply the global electricity industry.
Transformers are essential in the electricity grid. Our research has created an HTS transformer and is enhancing the capability of conventional transformers.
Magnetic sensors have a myriad of uses, from infrastructure inspection to traffic management. Our industry-led research is exploring further applications.
Fundamental research into novel electronic systems—superconductors, spintronics and hybrid materials—underpins and guides our industrial research programmes.
