Superconductive Components Receives Research Grant

February 12, 2001
Superconductive Components, Inc. has received a $100,000 Small Business Innovation Research Phase I grant from the National Science Foundation. The purpose of this grant is to develop a novel method for making ultra-fine particles of phase pure (nanocrystalline) strontium ruthenate (SrRuO3) using new coordination compounds. Successful development of this compound is expected to be an integral step toward commercial production of high-density sputtering targets of SrRuO3. These targets are expected to be used for thin-film electrodes in the next generation of high capacity stack storage capacitors.
