CAN SUPERCONDUCTORS, s.r.o. is a Czech company established in 1994. The company focuses on development and production of high temperature superconducting materials and components. All our products are based on long-period research and experience in superconductivity and related fields.

CAN supplies superconducting materials to private and state organizations, universities and research laboratories worldwide.


The use of Bi-2223 HTSC material brings not only the highest critical temperature of Bi based superconductors but also, when properly treated, a high critical current density with a lowered sensitivity to the external magnetic field. Single domain YBCO Levitation Bulk offers even more promising applications.

CAN products are used mainly in devices using magnetic levitation that are being developed for various purposes (energy storage, magnetic drives, transport, etc.).

Product Range: levitation bulk, current leads, magnetic shields, sputtering target, tubes for current limiters.


CAN cooperates with the Czech Academy of Science and Czech and Slovak technical universities
