Superconductivity

Discovered 100 years ago, continues to fascinate and attract the interest of scientists and non-scientists all around the globe. Being the only quantum phenomena visible to the naked eye, it offers a unique window to quantum mechanics.

Superconductivity introduces one of the most technically difficult challenges for physicists – designing a measurement setup that will be sensitive to both low (& zero) voltages/resistance and to high voltages/resistance at the same time.  The original graph from Onnes’s publication from 1911 showing the resistance of mercury as a function of its temperature. (H. K. Onnes, Comm. Leiden, 124c, […]
Quantum Levitation has dazzled millions of people via major TV networks, the TED conference live and online, and in universities and schools around the world. But we haven’t just created a sophisticated demo for audiences to view; we developed our kits to be simple-to-use and highly engaging educational tools.   You Can Experiment with Quantum Levitation […]
In 1911, Dutch physicist and Nobel Laureate Heike Kamerlingh Onnes discovered that when you cool the element mercury (Hg) in liquid helium to a temperature of -270°C (-454°F) , it exhibits a phenomenon of zero electrical resistance, which he then called superconductivity. For many years, all other low-temperature superconducting materials had critical temperature thresholds of only a few […]

Spotlight: Morimoto's Incredible Levitating Plate

The future of food presentation has arrived – and it’s floating above the tables at NYC’s Chelsea restaurant Morimoto. While molecular gastronomy and scientific trailblazing in the kitchen have created countless new flavors, the restaurant’s executive chef Erik Battes is thinking differently. Instead of geeking out with the food, he’s upping the ante on the presentation, using Quantum Levitation to create a mini hoverboard for an amuse-bouche.

Quantum locking will blow your mind — but how does it work? – io9

If case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the quantum levitation (or, more accurately, quantum locking) video that’s taken the internet by storm in the last 36 hours.

And while quantum locking (also known as “flux pinning”) may not have anything to do with Weeping Angels, it’s still pretty freaking amazing. But how does it work, and where the hell is your hoverboard?

Frozen Puck Hovers Over Track Using “Quantum Levitation” – wired

Researchers at the school of physics and astronomy at Tel Aviv University have created a track around which a superconductor can float, thanks to the phenomenon of “quantum levitation”.

What is Quantum Levitation (and How Does It Work)?

The reason this works is something called the Meissner effect and magnetic flux pinning. The Meissner effect dictates that a superconductor in a magnetic field will always expel the magnetic field inside of it, and thus bend the magnetic field around it. The problem is a matter of equilibrium. If you just placed a superconductor on top of a magnet, then the superconductor would just float off the magnet, sort of like trying to balance two south magnetic poles of bar magnets against each other.

Quantum Tentacles and Flying Saucers: A Rare Look at Quantum Mechanics in Action

In a world where seeing is believing, one of the chief disadvantages of quantum physics is that it’s largely invisible. The wonderfully bizarre rules that allow a vanishingly small particle to exist in two places simultaneously, for instance, usually apply at scales too small to be seen by the naked eye. But not always….
