From Quarks to Black Holes: let’s get INSPYRED!
Superconductors to jump in the future – A. Bersani (INFN-Genova)
First observed more than a century ago, the phenomenon of superoconductivity still represent a major, vibrating research field. Nowadays we start seeing the first industrial applications of such an extraordinary behaviour of matter at ultra low temperatures, and we can barely imagine how technology could develop in the next decades. “obviously”, waiting for next Halley’s Comet transit…
Andrea Bersani works at Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, Genova Division, in a group active in design and characterisation of superconducting magnets for nuclear and particle physics: these are fundamental components both for particle accelerators, and for the detectors we use to measure particles features. He is fond of science, mainly if he can speak about it, fine food and horses, these last two things not in the same moment.
