Professor David A. Cardwell

David A. Cardwell, BSc, MA, PhD, FInstP, CPhys, FIET, CEng is Professor of Superconducting Engineering, University of Cambridge. He is on the Editorial Boards of International Materials Reviews and Superconductor Science and Technology. He is Treasurer of the European Society for Applied Superconductivity and on the International Advisory Board of the International Superconductivity Symposium.
David’s research interests include high temperature superconductivity, processing of bulk superconductors, magnetic properties of bulk superconductors, and engineering applications of high temperature superconductors.
He coedited Handbook of Superconducting Materials, coauthored Controlled processing and properties of large Pt-doped Y—Ba—Cu—O pseudocrystals for electromagnetic applications, Bulk Superconducting Nano-Composites With High Critical Currents, Single domain YBCO/Ag bulk superconductors fabricated by seeded infiltration and growth, A practical route for the fabrication of large single-crystal (RE)—Ba—Cu—O superconductors, and Chemically prepared precursor powder for the fabrication of melt processed YBCO, and authored Processing and properties of large grain (RE)BCO.
