The Technology

The recent demand for quantum technologies garnered much attention for novel superconducting materials and devices. Many of these technologies require coating in superconducting materials, while others involve miniaturized devices. Hence, modern superconducting technologies are based vastly on thin films. Thin superconducting crystalline films require special growth conditions, including high temperatures and special substrates. Thus, the main usage of superconductors – coating is very limited.

The technology shows amorphous superconductors that can be processed reliably on a large variety of substrates, including: crystal, amorphous, polymer and van-der Waals.


  • Using amorphous materials for superconducting technologies
  • Removing the substrate limitation for superconducting coatings and superconducting devices
  • Integrating superconductors with other functional materials opens new directions for superconducting applications

Applications and Opportunities

  • Magnetic isolation
  • Flexible and transferrable superconducting devices
  • Superconducting-functional materials heterostructures
