The Iwate CREATE (Collaboration of Regional Entities for the Advancement of Technological Excellence) Project, "Advanced Applications of Magnetic Field", started since October 1999, aims a creation of a COE and a new industrial area in the field of magnetic field applications and magnetic measurements. The basic study group in this project is making extensive measurements on mechanical properties (strength, toughness and so on) and thermal properties (thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, Seebeck effect, and so on) of melt-textured high Tc bulk superconductors in order to build up a database and feed it back to the higher performance bulk material processing technique in the future. This group also studies the magnetizing technique for these materials and realization of various magnetic field environment for the application to the magnetic separation, highly oriented polymer film and so on.
