This is an inter- and intra-disciplinary proposal involving the combination of knowledge and expertise in microbiology, cryotechnology, organic, polymer, physical, analytical, environmental and surface chemistry.
Modern cryotechnology makes it possible to cost effectively operate at such temperatures, and that means that compact, lightweight systems based on high-temperature superconductors are being considered more often.
