SQUIDAn innovation in SQUID technology

The opportunity

Higher operating temperatures and greatly improved sensitivity will open up a wide range of applications for SQUID technology.

Sensitive magnetometers could now be deployed beyond the laboratory, leading to new real-world applications like portable MRI, and improvements in airport security.

Loughborough University is now seeking development partners for this advanced SQUID technology – both sensor manufacturers and end users in medical and scientific instrumentation, security, the oil industry and other applications.
