The search for exoplanets, aka Earth-sized rocky planets, is going to the next level, thanks to world's largest and most advanced superconducting device
, a 10,000-pixel camera that would directly snap exoplanetary candidates orbiting stars closest to our solar backyard.

"In 1990, American Superconductor built its first coils for a superconducting device
," said Bruce Gamble, director of engineering at AMSC.
A University of Rochester scientist together with scientists at Moscow's State Pedagogical University have developed a superconducting device
that can detect light in the 3 to 10 micrometers portion of the infrared spectrum.
of Houston, researcher Paul Chu chemically manipulates HTS materials with the ultimate goal of making a superconducting device
that is similar to a semiconductor.
The SCCLs fall into two categories: superconducting devices
and non-superconducting devices.
Our camera pixels are superconducting devices
which operate at an unimaginably cold temperature - only a quarter of a degree above absolute zero (therefore at -272.9degC) They were invented by a member of our team, originally for use in astronomy.
Other superconducting devices
mimicking the human brain cells and transmission have been developed in the past, but efficient synapses have been missing.
maker Bruker Energy & Supercon Technologies (BEST), part of US Bruker Corp (NASDAQ:BRKR), said Monday it has acquired German AIXUV GmbH, which specialises in XUV/EUV systems and key components, for an undisclosed amount.
Although the new superconducting devices
will offer no cost savings (at least in the early stages of acquisition), their light weight, compact size, and lower installation costs offer a net advantage aboard a ship.
Advanced 3D modelling and visualisation techniques have been used by scientists at VIN Technology Services, a business gateway to the University's technology and expertise, to demonstrate to potential investors how the ground-breaking new superconducting devices
will be manufactured in a future pilot plant.
