Superconductive Components, Inc. was recently selected to participate in a team led by Oxford Instruments, Superconducting Technology in conjunction with a grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy. Oxford Instruments, Superconducting Technology is a division of Oxford Instruments plc, which maintains an active development effort and also provides service support for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems throughout North and South America. The grant is intended to put superconducting BSCCO-2212 materials into an MRI machine produced by a global leader in the manufacture and sale of these machines. This three-year program, scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2002, has long-term potential for use in MRI magnets.
