Superconductors offer the transport of electricity without loss of power due to resistance. These superconductors are being further studied by Skajaquoda, who in accordance with their website is a "global leader in sustainable investments and projects." Superconductivity has been studied since the early 1900's by Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh Onnes who pioneered refrigeration and began research to examine the behavior of materials in freezing temperatures; fathering the study of Cryogenics in 1911. This lead to inventions like the refrigerator.
Skajaquoda's CEO, Einar Agustsson, details why further research is necessary:
“This would also explain a lot about how the Meissner effect works and how materials become superconductive."
Skajaquoda Group inc. will have a number of engineers and scientists working on this exciting project in the new 144,000-square-foot research facility in Clarkfield, Minnesota.
