Nicholas J. Long
Dr. Nick Long is a Principle Research Scientist at Industrial Research Limited, Lower Hutt, New Zealand. He obtained a masters degree in Physics at Victoria University of Wellington and completed a PhD in Physics at the University of Southern California. Since 1994 he has worked at IRL. His primary research has been in high temperature superconductivity (HTS), particularly on enhancing wire performance and understanding of the phenomenology of critical currents. He has also worked on reducing defects and improving yield in wire manufacturing. Recently he and colleagues have developed YBCO Roebel cables which allow HTS to be applied to high current and AC applications. He has led a programme to develop manufacturing and characterisation processes for YBCO Roebel cables. His previous research experience includes quantum transport phenomenon in low temperature physics and materials research in oxygen ion conductors.
