T
he seminar was

mainly

divided into two parts.
I
n the first part,
Dr.
Jack E
kin

gave a
n

introductory lecture on
superconductivity, with
emphasis on practical power superconductors for energy,
accelerator, and medical appl
ications.

H
e described

the fabrication
of practical superconductors and
its r
ecent applications
to

the

power grid, the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor,
high energy physics accelerators, and the very recent development
of superconducting pr
oton cancer treatment facilities.


The second part is more technical as
Dr. Jack E
kin

presented a


step
-
by
-
step approach to the design and construction of low
temperature measurement apparatus.
H
e outlined the
techniques
for cryostat design, heat
-
tran
sfer c
alculations,

construction

techniques, selection of materials, wiring, thermometry, sample
mounting techniques, and superconductor contact technology.
