The mission of the CES is to advance the frontier of understanding and control of the materials, mechanisms, and critical currents of superconductors, including existing and new materials, and to communicate Center and other research results throughout national and international communities.

Physicists and engineers in Brookhaven National Laboratory's Superconducting Magnet Division are in the final stages of assembling "replacement" magnets for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Brookhaven built twenty magnets already installed at the LHC. The replacements are intended to be on hand for as quick a switch as possible if they are needed.
Brookhaven Lab scientists used an indirect method to detect fluctuating "stripes" of charge density—a key signature to look for as they seek ways to better understand and engineer superconductors for future energy-saving applications.
