About SUSTEC

SUSTECロゴ
Our core technology is the world's only high-temperature superconducting thin film multilayer fabrication technology and its systemization technology based on previous research on superconducting computer circuits using quantum phenomena. High-temperature superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetic sensors have constant ultra-high sensitivity performance in a wide frequency range, and can be easily used by cooling in liquid nitrogen available at low cost anywhere in the world. In addition to its performance, we have achieved high magnetic field tolerance by our original multi-layer technology and sensor configuration, and realized the optimum equipment for outdoor use. The electromagnetic exploration device (SQUITEM No. 3) which was jointly developed with Mitsui Mineral Development Engineering Co., Ltd. in 2013 under the commission of Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC), is used for actual exploration of metal resources overseas. In addition, the improved equipment for deep exploration is used for geothermal reservoir exploration in Japan and test survey in overseas oil fields, and its applicability to strata monitoring at a depth of 3000 m has been demonstrated. Inheriting the technologies of its predecessor, International Superconductivity Technology Center (ISTEC) and the Superconducting Sensing Technology Research Association (SUSTERA), we will continue to develop and operate higher-performance electromagnetic exploration equipment. However, we will contribute to the realization of a decarbonized and hydrogen-based society. We will also develop and sell superconducting magnetic sensors and inspection systems that meet the needs of society such as non-destructive inspection, medical care, and biotechnology.
