[EurekAlert!] KERI, reducing the size and weight of medical MRI equipment by more than half 


July 19, 2019 – 
The Superconductivity Research Center of the Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI, President Gyu-ha Choe) under the Ministry of Science and ICT has developed a superconducting insulation technology that can significantly reduce the size and weight of medical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment.

KERI research team developed "smart insulation" technology that can solve the heating issue of superconducting wire while significantly reducing the amount of copper used. This special technology performs insulation during normal operation so that electricity doesn't leak, and when superconducting wire starts heating, it automatically transforms into a conductor to help electricity flow between lines.
