Ramesh Gupta

Ramesh Gupta has always been a leader in the world of superconducting magnets, which are essential to great modern accelerators such as the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at BNL, and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Switzerland. For the past decade, Lab researchers have been exploring the use of new materials that become superconducting at higher temperatures. Gupta, head of the High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) Research and Development Group in the Superconducting Magnet Division, is among those exploring avenues for HTS magnets that are energy efficient and have magnetic fields that are a million times stronger than the Earth’s. These new magnets could revolutionize use in future accelerators, play a key role in energy efficiency and storage, and make possible new applications such as muon colliders and MRI screening in remote areas. To date, Gupta and his group have built more than 100 HTS coils and 10 HTS magnets using tens of kilometers of such conductors. Gupta is also part of the BNL team that received the ARPA-E grant to study superconducting magnet energy storage magnets for MRI.
