Transcript New Chu joins the TCSUH research team In January the Texas Center for Superconductivity (TCSUH) hired a new deputy director a second Dr. Chu. Physicist Wie-Kan Chu, no relation to the famous Paul Chu, came to UH from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Chu said TCSUH's strong research capabilities, an opportunity to apply research findings and to work with Paul Chu brought him to UH. 4'Resources to research are very abundant here, and my duties (as deputy director) provide a personal challenge. Also, working with Paul Chu is a lot of fun," he said. Chu, who began as a part-time consultant for the center, said his first task is to help establish a laboratory for studying the effects of ion beams on superconductive materials and for producing ion- treated superconductors. Chu said that in beam implantation, a shield is applied to superconductive materials, much like painters use masking tape. Some areas are shielded from the beam and others are left exposed to it. The chemical properties of exposed areas are altered, rendering those areas non- superconductive. By the same token, Chu said, the shielded areas remain superconductive and form paths for electricty to follow. "Almost like a cir- cuitboard," Chu said. The new lab will feature two state-of-the-art ion beam implantation machines, Chu said. The smaller of the two, a 200,000 kv (electron volts) device, will allow scientists to study the superconductive properties of many exotic elements. A larger 1.7 million volt machine will have to wait until a new science and research building is completed, Chu said. "That should be in late 1990," he said. Chu said he will not be teaching at UH for at least the first year, but hopes his workload will allow him back into the classroom after that. "I enjoy teaching," Chu said. ► Michael A. Smith The university will house a 1.7 million volt ion beam implantation machine at the completion of Science and Research III in late 1990. Superconductivity ■ 39
