Robinson Research Institute develops electromagnetic and materials technologies and has a strong international reputation for superconductivity research. In this talk I’ll go into some of the outstanding problems we are working on to allow superconductivity to be a transformative technology in fields such as aviation, space propulsion and fusion energy.
The institute has also developed collaborative projects in fibre optic sensing and terahertz physics. We are developing spintronic THz emitters (STEs) made from magnetic thin films with the goal of improved conversion efficiency, throughput, and bandwidth. The programme in STEs combines expertise in both ultrafast laser technology and spintronics.
