December 5, 2016 (A366).  On November 28, 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy announced nearly $25 million for 13 projects aimed at advancing technologies for energy-efficient electric motors through applied research and development. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Next Generation Electric Machines projects will address the limitations of traditional materials and designs used in electric motor components by cost-effectively enhancing their efficiency, improving their performance, and reducing weight. This effort will support innovative approaches that will significantly improve the technology in industrial electric motors, which use approximately 70 percent of the electricity consumed by U.S. manufacturers and nearly a quarter of all electricity consumed nationally.

March 22, 2016 (PN4).  Britton Plourde of Syracuse University, NY, USA, Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity (IEEE TASC), was interviewed by APS online Physics on his interest in building quantum computers with superconductors.  That interview was published online in Physics 9, 29 of March 17, 2016 and can be found here.

The SNF had 1,128 visitors in the month of August 2017,
and has had 142,639 visitors 
since its inception on July 15, 2007.
