Magnesium Boride Nanoparticles

These nanoparticles are also a boron-based compound consisting of alternating layers of magnesium and boron. The boron and magnesium layers are packed in the hexagonal phase. Such that each Magnesium layer is enclosed between two Boron layers. Accordingly, The nanoparticles were placed in the category of superconductors called electronic-phone superconductors. The superconductivity in magnesium boride is believed to be mainly due to the Boron layers. Because these layers support the two conductive bands in Magnesium boride nanoparticles. The interest of MgB2 nanoparticles is not only its critical temperature, but also the cost of the synthesized materials and its raw product. Compared to other superconductors, MgB2 Nanoparticles have longer coherence length, lower anisotropy, higher operating temperature, higher device speed and higher critical current densities, etc. The use of 10B in MgB2 increases the critical temperature by 1 K. Similarly, 10B has a larger cross section for the thermal neutron. Therefore, magnesium boride synthesized with 10B will be suitable not only for neutron detection, but also for boron neutron capture therapy. The discovery of superconductivity in Magnesium boride nanoparticles at 39 K has accelerated the search for its properties related to several parameters. The properties of MgB2 nanoparticles were found to be strongly related to their purity. The purity in turn depends on the techniques of synthesis and the precursors of use. Besides purity, size also matters a lot in the evolution of material properties.
