(Third Week)

Chairman: A. Paskin, Brookhaven National Laboratory



Arthur Paskin arranged this week as a survey of presently available superconducting materials and a look into the future. Particularly interesting were two “Manufacturer-User round-tables,” in which opinions were exchanged about what would he desirable in the realm of superconducting materials. The voice of common sense came from the representatives of industry who explained which user hopes were reasonable and which were not. Unfortunately for those who were not present, these sessions were not recorded; it had been agreed early in the Study that, in the interests of free discussion, nothing would be published that was not submitted to the Editors in writing.

Following papers were submitted for publication:
