I do research on superconductors with undergraduates at UW-Eau Claire. In our research group we study the mechanical properties of superconducting materials that are designed for large magnet applications. We currently are focused on three materials technologies: tape-based YBCO, round wire Bi-2212, and round wire Nb3Sn. If you'd like to learn more about our projects and publications, you can download my CV from my faculty webpage at www.uwec.edu/profiles/jewellmc/.
