Can SpaceX use Advanced Plasma Propulsion for Starship?

The journey to Mars will take a SpaceX Starship up to six months with chemical methylox engines. Radiation exposure on Earth is below 2.5milliseiverts per year. Colonists will suffer levels 300 times higher than that on their way to Mars. Can we apply superconducting advanced plasma propulsion systems to shorten that to only 30 days? Neutron Star Systems has developed an advanced magnetoplasmadynamic thruster system using rare earth barium copper oxide high temperature superconducting electromagnets that greatly increase the performance of plasma propulsion while reducing power consumption. This could be the future of spaceflight propulsion.
