Programs on Small-Scale Superconducting Devices in Canada

As is pointed out in Dr. Bogner’s paper [1], Canada has an established program on large-scale applications of superconductivity, specifically for magnetically levitated trains employing linear induction motor drive. In the area of small-scale applications, the effort is more scattered, and is the result of a relatively small number of investigators (perhaps 20 or 30) working more or less independently of each other. Academic institutions, government laboratories, and a few industrial laboratories are all involved in this work.
