CERN also explained the dual nature of Magnesium diboride
This is exactly what scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN, are investigating: a new magnetic shield for spacecraft -superconducting magnesium diboride
, or MgB₂.
We are developing a magnesium diboride
superconducting coil to replace the gear box.
A small breakthrough came in 2001, when a well-known compound called magnesium diboride
was discovered to superconduct at 40 kelvins.

, Nature 410, 63-64(2001).
Researchers at the Aoyama-Gakuin University in Tokyo, in a letter to the journal Nature, reported finding superconducting properties in magnesium diboride
, a compound of magnesium and boride.

MgB2: A Simple Compound with Important Physical Properties (Michael Pissas).
Most remarkable--and inexplicable--was how warm the compound, magnesium diboride
, could get before its superconductivity disappeared.
BEST) announced today the completion of its first 1000 meter unit length magnesium diboride
(MgB2) superconducting wire, with a strand Je of up to 91 A/mmU at 4.
A simple, readily available material called magnesium diboride
was found to conduct electricity without resistance at an unexpectedly high temperature, sparking a surge of research into the compound (159: 134 (*)).
We're excited to be getting the word out about the broad range of superconductor products we offer or are developing here in the Advanced Supercon business, including first-generation (BSCCO) and second-generation (YBCO) HTS wire and medium temperature superconductor (MTS) magnesium diboride
Physicists in Japan have found superconductivity at a surprisingly high temperature in the simple, readily available metallic compound magnesium diboride
